The U.S. Department of Energy's Project Hanford Management Contract Costs and Performance
To offset the negative impact of downsizing its facilities, the Department of Energy (DOE) established a commitment to economic stability. In its Fiscal Year (FY) 1997 Strategic Plan, DOE set a goal to help industry sustain long-term economic growth. That goal was to create 10,000 to 15,000 new jobs comparable to or better in skill than the jobs being lost at DOE facilities.
