Attachment A STATEMENT OF TASK The National Research Council will convene an expert committee to evaluate the effectiveness of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencyâs Title 42 program. On the basis of available information, theory, and experience, the committee will evaluate the effectiveness of the program in meeting its original objectives, as implemented by EPA and relative to its application in other federal scientific agencies. The committee will comment on EPAâs recruitment and retention of highly qualified environmental research scientists and engineers, and it will evaluate in general terms the overall quality and impact of EPAâs Title 42 appointees. Finally, the committee will recommend methods and approaches that EPA might employ to strengthen its scientific leadership and to enhance the Title 42 Program. Prepublication Copy 17
