Since its inception, the Northwest Pollution Prevention Network has become an increasingly
valuable resource that is helping the region’s
technical assistance providers (TAPs) and other
information "retailers" deliver timely and accurate
pollution prevention information more effectively.
The network supports assistance providers in their
outreach to industry and other key audiences, and
enhances the value of their services.
· RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT: Improving quality and accessibility of information resources, and making information available in 15 minutes or less.An essential element of the network’s value is proactively linking information resources with target audiences. Good information supports the work of assistance providers. Building regional relationships ensures that good information will be disseminated more widely to people who can put it to use.
Over the past year, significant work has gone into augmenting the regional store of information in response to the needs of key sectors and to broad regional issues that P2 can play an important role in addressing.
Through communications and coordination services, the network has strengthened relationships among the state and federal participants. Additionally, outreach to local government, energy efficiency assistance providers, and wastewater treatment programs has helped to broaden and deepen the network.
Through a comprehensive service delivery approach, the network is enhancing the value of all participating information providers, by creating a structure for them to conveniently draw on each others’ expertise when serving clients. As a national network is developed, this enhancement of value will continue to grow.
The success of the Northwest Pollution Prevention Network relies on a balance of human and electronic
support networks. By building working relationships
among the region’s assistance providers, the network
ensures that resources will reach intended audiences
more widely and will be used more effectively.

In 2000, many of the regional features and services established in the past three years through the
Northwest Pollution Prevention Network will
continue to expand. We expect that regional
services such as the monthly What’s New in P2
e-bulletin, Rapid Response Research Service, regional
roundtable, calendar and others will continue to be
improved. On the national level, databases such as the
Research Projects Database and the Request for
Proposals Clearinghouse will continue to be a priority.
