OTIE has provided Brownfields technical services supporting the USEPA Region 5’s Brownfields program operations and outreach activities. Technical support provided by OTIE ensured that community development agencies, municipalities, and Native American tribes in USEPA Region 5 were made aware of the technical and financial resources available through the program. Tasks included the following:
Targeted Brownfields Assessments (TBA). Developed multi-site work plan documents to streamline the approach for conducting Phase I and Phase II TBAs at candidate Brownfields sites. This one-step model developed by OTIE for conducting TBAs consists of jointly assessing site characteristics and risk, and identifying likely response actions and estimated cost. OTIE also developed a database to track yearly grant proposals allowing EPA to select the best candidates for TBAs and calculate funding for each state by type of grant. This database was used as a template by EPA headquarters in Washington to create a national system. OTIE conducted multiple Phase I and Phase II TBAs in U.S. EPA Regions 4 and 5, following ASTMD requirements and EPA protocols.
General Technical Program Support. Provided facilitation support during EPA’s annual Regional Funding Panel Review by working closely with EPA staff throughout the evaluation process. OTIE also compiled performance data regarding job training grants and grantee performance for EPA reports. rvices
