Abstract:

The Army National Guard ARNG has conducted environmental compliance assessments since 1992 in conformance to the general provisions of Army Regulation AR 200-1 but without any standardized auditing procedures or protocols to relate the performance of the internal assessments to the established external assessments. To address this deficiency, ARNG developed a number of tools and practices that are different from those used by other Federal agencies. To evaluate the effectiveness of these processes, the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratories performed quality assurancequality control evaluations on external assessments managed by two different contractors and an internal environmental compliance assessment. This report summarizes the practices that should be considered for unilateral implementation, discrepancies in processes and guidance, and gaps problem areas in the assessment process.
