ABSTRACT

Contractor Oversight: Information on the National Nuclear Security Administration's Report on Burdensome Regulatory Requirements   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "In 2018, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA)--a separately organized agency within the Department of Energy (DOE)--began work to conduct a congressionally directed survey of the contractors that manage and operate NNSA sites to identify requirements they viewed as burdensome. In June 2019, NNSA provided a report to Congress on its findings. NNSA's report listed 91 requirements that its management and operating (M&O) contractors identified as burdensome, and NNSA prioritized 16 matters for further review. [...] Our report provides information on three areas related to NNSA's report on the requirements that M&O contractors identified as burdensome: (1) a comparison of NNSA's findings in its report with findings reported by external groups, (2) NNSA's approach to collecting and reporting the information on requirements M&O contractors identified as burdensome, and (3) NNSA's actions to address the requirements that the M&O contractors identified."
