Web Publishing Schedule

Section 207(f)(2) of the E-Government Act of 2002 requires federal agencies to develop an inventory of information to be published on their Web sites, establish a schedule for publishing information, make those schedules available for public comment, and post the schedules and priorities on the Web site.  

The table below organizes EPA's Web publishing into "activities" instead of organizational units because these activities create common types of content, regardless of the particular part of EPA. For example, all regulatory programs publish regulations and related fact sheets, regardless of the specific environmental issue they address. Similarly, many parts of EPA issue grants, but the kind of information we publish about them doesn't depend on the organizational unit.

We have a long-standing policy to publish information as soon as it can be released to the public, so there is no more specific schedule. As new information becomes available that is important to the public, we are committed to putting it on our Web site.

To comment on our publishing schedule please contact Angela Shogren, 202-343-9761.
