Compliance and Process Tracking (CPTrack)

  • Helps Federal agencies institute and manage the entire environmental and safety compliance assessment process and the EMS conformance assessment process—from field audits and report writing through corrective action and management plans.
  • Enables Federal agencies to create a tailored checklist and conduct a self-audit tailored to the activities and functions at a facility, document an internal/external audit, track the closure of findings of noncompliance, document regulator site visits, and reduce the number of data calls to the field, via web-based tool.
  • Supports the compliance auditing programs of the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of State, and the Veterans Administration. Contact Donna Schell for more information and/or a demonstration.


  • Provides on-line, searchable database where Federal agencies can identify environmental compliance requirements that apply to their facilities and activities, and then distribute those requirements to individual facilities.
  • Offers assessment “how-to” guidance and easy access to the protocols to all levels of users, links checklist items to processes, provides simplified checklists and guidance for facility self-assessments, and allows users to download the protocols in different computer formats for use in agency-specific software.
