Review of the Uranium Processing Facility Project Design Requirements and Configuration Management Program

This report documents the results of an independent oversight review of the design control and configuration management program at the Uranium Processing Facility (UPF) project.  The review was performed November 18-22, 2013 and December 16-20, 2013, by the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Safety and Emergency Management Evaluations, which is within the DOE Office of Health, Safety and Security. 

This review examined the processes used by the UPF project contractor to control safety basis development and engineering design to ensure that requirements and commitments in the safety basis are adequately identified, captured, and implemented.  It also assessed processes for maintaining configuration and change control of the related documents.
