The Energy Information Administration (EIA) in the U.S. Department of Energy has undertaken the development of a management information system to be used by Federal and State Officials responsible for dealing with energy emergencies. The system must meet challenging requirements in several areas: (1) It will be multi-fuel in scope, and will require development of an integrated data base interrelating information across fuel types, transportation modes, and end-use sectors; (2) it will serve users at various government levels, and will involve states in the development process; and factual data and forecasts will need to be timely and easily accessible, and communications among users must be facilitated. This paper describes the design approaches being taken by EIA in building an interim system.
