SBO/SBEAP National Steering Committee Vision, Mission, and Goals
The SBO/SBEAP National Steering Committee (NSC)
was created in 1995 to represent the interests of the Small Business 507
Programs (507 Programs) and also to provide a networking and communications
tool between the programs and EPA's Small Business Ombudsman (SBO) and EPA's
Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS). One
representative from each EPA region serves on the NSC, along with an
alternative from that region. The NSC Representative participates in
monthly conference calls, serves as a conduit for information to other
assistance providers in the region, and acts as a focal point of contact to
disseminate information to and from the 507 Program service providers.
The NSC provides a vehicle for identifying and resolving problems faced by
the 507 program service providers and, through partnership with EPA SBO and
OAQPS, works towards mutually effective solutions.
