From the Executive Summary: "The 'Reports Consolidation Act of 2000' requires Federal agency Inspectors General (IG) to annually summarize what they consider to be the most serious management and performance challenges facing their agency and to assess the agency's progress in addressing those challenges. [...] In accordance with the act, the IG at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) updated what he considers to be the most serious management and performance challenges facing NRC. The IG considered the overall work of the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), the OIG staff's general knowledge of agency operations, and other relevant information to develop and update his list of management and performance challenges and assess the agency's progress in addressing the challenges. [...] The IG identified seven challenges that he considers the most serious management and performance challenges facing NRC. The challenges identify critical areas or difficult tasks that warrant high-level management attention."
