On January 17, 2012, EPA finally publicly released the EPA Office of Inspector General’s Response to Corrective Action Plan for OIG Report No. 11-P-0215, EPA ‘s Endocrine Disrupt or Screening Program Should Establish Management Controls to Ensure More Timely Results, May 3, 2011.  The OIG is not entirely satisfied with EPA’s response.  For example, the IG’s  response letter asks for an “EDSP Management Plan [that] should clearly establish the criteria that the Agency will use to evaluate chemicals during Tier 2 testing, including references and links to specific guidance documents, targeted studies, risk assessment guidance, and hazard evaluation criteria to be used during Tier 2 testing.”
