1:00-4:00Zero-Cost Tier 2 Report Management Workshop using Tier2Submit/CAMEO


Brianne Connolly-- NOAA CAMEO Suite Project Manager

Kristen Faiferlick CAMEO and Tier2Submit Technical Writer

Tim Gablehouse Colorado SERC Member

Henry Jolly New Mexico Tier 2 Manager; SERC Member

Tom Bergman Oklahoma Tier 2 Manager; SERC Member

The workshop will focus on strategies for effective, zero-cost management of Tier 2 reports using a combination of Tier2Submit, CAMEO and Google Earth Products. Arkansas, Colorado, New Mexico, and Oklahoma have all implemented a 1-stop-shop system for Tier2 collection, management and distribution. The regulated community submits Tier 2 reports electronically to the state office, and does not send duplicate reports to the LEPCs and FDs. Essentially, all these states have implemented their Tier 2 system at zero-cost by utilizing Tier 2 Submit software as the required submission software. Each state officer will provide a presentation on their system. Kristen Faiferlick will present on a NOAA project to make Tier 2 information available as an application for tablets and other devices. Brianne Connolly will discuss NOAA plans for future development of Tier2 Submit and CAMEO as pertaining to Tier2 Chemical Reporting.

Note: NASTTPO is aware that many states have implemented electronic Tier 2 filing via commercial or proprietary software, often supported by fees. This workshop is designed to share the experiences of states in implementing a "1-stop-shop" Tier 2 report collection, management, and distribution system using a low to zero cost option.
