Compaq's Environmental Compliance System, eFACTS, Wins Enterprise Value Award From CIO Magazine (Advisory)
HOUSTON, February 25, 2002
An environmental compliance tracking system called eFACTS, designed by Compaq Computer Corporation (NYSE: CPQ) for the State of Pennsylvania, has received CIO Magazine's 2002 Enterprise Value Award.
eFACTS, which stands for Environment, Facility, Application, Compliance Tracking System, is an online database that enables the tracking of information about environmentally regulated programs, properties, businesses, clients and facilities. Designed at the direction of then-Governor Tom Ridge, eFACTS was developed in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to help protect the Commonwealth's air, land and water from pollution, and provide for the health and safety of its citizens through a clean and safe environment.
Since its inception six years ago, eFACTS has helped to manage more than 150,000 environmental permits. Much of the eFACTS information is available online so citizens can track the environmental permits and learn about pollution at the local level.
