ADEQ Leads in Deploying Arizona Management System
ADEQ first agency to take a systems approach to governmental efficiency
Recently, Arizona Department of Environmental Quality announced that the Environmental Council of the States (ECOS) visited ADEQ to get a first-hand look at how ADEQ is successfully implementing the Arizona Management System (AMS). ECOS included representatives of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the states of MA, CO, NE, OH, DE, WY, VA, NH, AL, NM, OK and tribal representatives.
Over the last few years, ADEQ has also conducted tours and trainings for the City of Goodyear, Maricopa County Flood Control District, Pima County Wastewater Reclamation Department, more than a dozen Arizona agencies, US EPA's Lean Action Board, PEW Charitable Trust and the states of MO, KS, RI, AR and UT. These highly requested tours give attendees a better understanding of the management system and creates an eagerness to learn, understand and implement the principles of AMS.
