Independent Assessment of Conduct of Operations at the Hanford Site Tank-Side Cesium Removal Facility - October 2022

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Enterprise Assessments (EA) conducted an independent assessment of selected elements of the conduct of operations program implemented by Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS) at the Hanford Site tank-side cesium removal (TSCR) facility in July 2022. This assessment evaluated the effectiveness of WRPS in managing and maintaining a conduct of operations program and included performance-based evaluation of conduct of operations at TSCR as WRPS was shutting down processing and preparing outage activities following TSCR’s second operating cycle.
