Review of Richland Operations Office and CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Company and Mission Support Alliance Conduct of Operations
The purpose of this independent oversight review by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Enforcement and Oversight, within the Office of Health, Safety and Security (HSS), was to observe and shadow1 a DOE Richland Operations Office (DOE-RL) assessment of its contractors at the Hanford Site. The HSS reviewer observed the implementation and effectiveness of the DOE-RL assessment of two of the contractors (CHPRC and MSA) from November 7 to 18, 2011. The HSS review was conducted in accordance with the HSS Office of Safety and Emergency Management Evaluations Protocol for Small Team Oversight Activities, dated May 2011.
The HSS independent review concluded that the DOE-RL CONOPS and work management assessment was performed in accordance with DOE Policy 226.1B and DOE Order 5480.19 expectations. The DOERL CONOPS and work management assessments of MSA and CHPRC were well planned and conducted, and the findings and conclusions documented in DOE-RL assessment reports accurately reflect the assessment team’s inspection efforts and the facility conditions at the time of the assessments.
