Greenwood Village, CO, United States, 2010/03/04 - CIBER, Inc, (NYSE: CBR) and the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) have launched a new state-of-the-art, secure online system that begins a new era in air pollution emissions reporting, database management and pollution control. NYSE: CBR
The new system will expand and improve emissions data collection and reporting in fulfillment of DEP’s obligations under the federal Clean Air Act, while also ensuring efficient access to that data for regulated entities and non-regulated businesses, agencies and members of the general public.
The Emissions Inventory Tracking (EMIT) system will help Connecticut businesses and industries that face increasingly complex and demanding reporting requirements to comply with the federal Clean Air Act. Previously, DEP obtained point source emissions information through a paper-based annual emissions statement report that is submitted by the owner of a source of air pollution in the state. The submitted data has traditionally been quality assured and transferred to an electronic database. The EMIT system automates many of the manual, paper-based data collection processes, allowing the regulated community to streamline their emissions reporting.
DEP Commissioner Amey Marrella said, “This new system puts the power of technology to work to improve government services and better serve the people of our state. By automating an antiquated, paper-based process for collecting information, we are enabling businesses and industries to streamline reporting that is required under the federal Clean Air Act. The system will also provide DEP staff with instant access to the information needed to ensure compliance with the requirements of emissions permits, which helps protect the quality of the air we breathe.”
“CIBER and DEP are launching an innovative yet practical way of collecting and reporting data that not only complies with regulations but enhances the State’s ability to plan for and effectively institute pollution control measures. This was a very complex implementation, involving cleansing and conversion of historical data that could not have been successfully implemented without the strong working partnership that was formed between DEP and CIBER,” said Tom Saltzer, Vice President and Area Director of CIBER, and head of CIBER State and Local Government Development Center in Harrisburg, Penn.
According to Saltzer, “The EMIT system’s architecture leverages all of the benefits of current web technologies, includes a greenhouse gas inventory and comprehensive reporting of industrial, area, and mobile emissions. EMIT will be the next generation of the Air Emissions Inventory System and will consist of a SQL Server database and user-friendly, browser-based applications developed with .NET technologies.”
CIBER has more than 25 years experience working with state government clients to streamline operations, accurately meet reporting and other compliance requirements, and efficiently manage the basics of day-to-day operations. CIBER is also providing leadership on projects that address newer concerns such as Government Consolidation and Shared Services.
