Audit Report: Kansas City Responsive Infrastructure Manufacturing and Sourcing Program   [open pdf - 93KB]

"The Kansas City Plant, managed and operated by Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technologies, LLC (Honeywell), is the Department of Energy's (Department) National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA) primary production site for non-nuclear weapon products. [...] As part of the Kansas City Responsive Infrastructure Manufacturing and Sourcing (KCRIMS) Program, Honeywell is in the process of relocating the Plant operations at the Bannister Federal Complex in Kansas City, Missouri to the newly constructed National Security Campus, located about seven miles away. The move to the Campus will reduce the Plant facility footprint from approximately 3.1 million square feet to approximately 1.24 million square feet. During and after the Plant relocation, production shutdowns are required. Additionally, some manufacturing processes and parts will have to be requalified at the Campus before the Plant can use the parts or deliver the parts to other NNSA sites. Requalification includes evaluating component production and testing of processes to ensure that quality, safety and security standards are met. During production shutdowns and the subsequent requalification periods, the Plant must meet other NNSA sites' scheduled demand for components. Given the importance of the Plant's role in satisfying Directed Stockpile Work requirements, we focused our audit on determining whether the Plant had taken adequate actions to ensure that non-nuclear components required to maintain the enduring stockpile systems are produced without delay or interruption during and after the relocation to the new manufacturing facility."
