FY 2008/2009 PERFORMANCE
ILLINOIS EPA AND REGION 5, USEPA
We are pleased to execute our twelfth Performance Partnership Agreement and thereby to
continue the journey envisioned in the National Environmental Performance Partnership System.
This agreement sets forth our mutual agenda for continued environmental progress and our
expectations for the state/federal relationship. We have assembled in one comprehensive
document the joint priorities, goals, strategies and measures for most of the environmental
programs that are carried out in Illinois. Illinois will also operate under a Performance
Partnership Grant that provides federal funding for the programs described in this agreement.
The execution of this agreement demonstrates our continuing commitment to environmental
improvement that is both cost-effective and responsive to public concerns. We believe that this
agreement meets our obligation to find better ways of accomplishing our regulatory objectives.
It also builds upon the lessons learned from previous partnership agreements.
