On August 28, 2012, the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board (DNFSB or “Board”) wrote to the Department of Energy (DOE) regarding its views on DOE’s need to improve activity-level work planning and control (WP&C). This report documents analysis results and recommendations responsive to the following subtask: Conduct an analysis of the WP&C deficiencies identified by the DNFSB to determine common trends, causal factors, or systematic weaknesses with DOE’s WP&C processes or implementation. In addition, review the Occurrence Reporting and Processing System (ORPS) for the last three years to determine if there are any common trends or areas of weaknesses with WP&C. Based on the results of these two analyses, identify specific corrective actions to address the findings.
