Created in 1970, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) safeguards the environmental quality of Illinois’ land, air and water in order to protect health, welfare, property and quality of life; all while balancing the social and economic needs of the state. The IEPA employs 1,200 people who work from either the headquarters’ office in Springfield or in one of nine field offices and three laboratories throughout the state.
Helping Safeguard the Environment
Illinois Environmental Protection Agency implemented DocuWare in the Bureau of Land in order to share information with employees across the state in 13 different locations. The solution has allowed the agency to eliminate multiple archives, improve file integrity and significantly reduce document management and storage costs. Compliance with the Freedom of Information Act is much easier now that requested documents can be distributed on CD.
