Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*Through the DOIT committee, as well as the supporting DOIT Coordinating Group, and its four working groups, 1) mining, 2) military bases, 3) mixed wastes, and 4) the interstate technology regulatory cooperation (ITRC) working group, this initiative has been instrumental in identifying barriers to the development and deployment of innovative environmental technologies. The working groups in particular have provided a unique opportunity for federal agencies, state governments, stakeholders, and industry to have open discussions on how to overcome these barriers in a practical and timely fashion. For example, the ITRC was recognized with the Vice President's Hammer Award for government reinvention in September 1996 for its groundbreaking work on removing regulatory barriers to the use of innovative technologies by the Department of Defense and Department of Energy. The ITRC was also instrumental in the agreement of six state to work toward reciprocity for environmental technology, a major breakthrough in states allowing the use of new technologies and the creation of a regional and national market for these technologies.
How is membership balanced?*Through its coordinating group and working groups, the DOIT initiative has offered the opportunity to a broad spectrum of interests to discuss the barriers to the use of environmental technologies. Environmental groups, public and tribal interests, federal and state regulators, the Department of Defense, Energy, Interior and EPA, all participated in the discussions focused on specific aspects of environmental technologies and their uses related to the cleanup of federal sites in the West. Through the ITRC, this discussion was broad to include other states from the Northeast, South and Midwest.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*N/A
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*This effort was critical because there is no other formation that brought so many broad interests together to focus on the use of environmental technologies for the cleanup of federal sites and allowed for related issues and challenges to be addressed together. This focusing of effort was instrumental in crafting far ranging and insightful recommendations to the states and federal agencies; 1) Improve performance and reduce costs through expanded regulatory options that encourage innovation, 2) stimulate economic growth and reduce costs by creating regional and national markets for innovative technologies, and 3) cut costs and expedite cleanup through collaborative partnering among regulators, federal agencies, tribes and stakeholders.
