>EPA's Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Program, in cooperation
>with the Federal Facilities Enforcement Office, the EO 13148 Workgroup,
>the Performance Track Program, and the Design for the Environment
>Program, is developing a tool to assist federal facilities in
>incorporating green purchasing into the development and implementation
>of their environmental management system (EMS). As you are most likely
>aware, many federal facilities are currently either developing or
>implementing their EMS, in anticipation of the December 2005 deadline
>set by Executive Order 13148. We view these activities as an excellent
>opportunity to assist in EMS development by providing information on how 
>green purchasing programs relate to the various elements of the EMS 
>framework. We expect this effort will result in:
>
>- Greater interest by federal facilities in including green purchasing
>in their EMS.
>- EMS-based management tools that can help federal facilities maximize
>the benefits of their green purchasing program.
>- Case studies that show how some leading federal facilities are
>incorporating green purchasing into their EMS.

>The last item is where we would like your help. If you have any
>examples you feel might contribute to this module, please send them to
>Tom Wallace at wallacet@saic.com. Please pass this request on to list
>serves, agencies, bureaus, services, and/or field offices that might be
>able to provide some input. Those needing more information can feel free 
>to contact me or the SAIC contractors listed below working with us on this 
>project. Thank you for your assistance.
