The Office of Pollution Prevention and technology Development (OPPTD) of
the CA
Dept. of Toxic Substances Control is requesting information on P2 Awards and
recognition programs.  Specifically, I am looking for information related to
1) eligibility criteria, 2) categories, 3) review process, 4) program analysis
results such as a) # of applicants/resulting awards, b) years that the awards
program has been in existence/is it still in existence (why or why not?),
c) workload requirements in terms of hours spent advertising, reviewing, com-
pliance checks, meetings, award plaques, facility costs, etc. and d) pros and
cons of awards programs in the short and long term in terms of whether it is a
"good" thing to do - that is, was P2 activity increased by those receiving the
awards/recognition and/or did the agency organizing the event get an
acceptable
"return on investment" in terms of P2 marketing, outreach, educational oppor-
tunities that an awards program can potentially provide.  Finally, information
related to the measurement of success of an awards program in order to deter-
mine how to make it better or discontinue it altogether is requested.

Award application forms, outreach materials, evaluation criteria, types of
awards (plaques, certificates, etc.), and time, place, and venue (i.e.,
opening
of a new "green" business, County Board of SUpervisors meeting, during
national
pollution prevention week, etc.) would be greatly appreciated.

And, for the first 25 respondents sending us information related to p2 awards
program, a copy of the award-winning "The Surfer, the Garbageman,  and the
Lady
in the Sky" video tape and workbook will be sent.

Please send information to Robert Ludwig, DTSC/OPPTD, P.O. Box 806,
Sacramento,
CA 95812-0806.  If you have any questions or need more information, please
call
me  at (916) 324-2659.  Thank you for your assistance.

Best regards,
Robert Ludwig
