Vision

  • Tools and workspaces for statistical staff across agencies
    • With source material for economists and statisticians
    • Available to new employees
    • Not for general public
  • Wiki as Web tool
    • MediaWiki software (same as used by Wikipedia) hosted by EPA
    • Virtually zero cost to maintain the software
    • No special software beyond web browser is needed by user
    • Version control system
    • Search engine
    • Security includes user login, version control, rollback capability, user-blocking (when needed)
