Independent Assessment of Work Planning and Control at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant 

The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Enterprise Assessments (EA) conducted an independent assessment of work planning and control (WP&C) at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant onsite in March 2020 and, due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 pandemic, remotely in May 2021. Specifically, this assessment evaluated the Four Rivers Nuclear Partnership, LLC (FRNP) WP&C processes for deactivation work, elements of the FRNP electrical safety program and contractor assurance system, and the Portsmouth/Paducah Project Office (PPPO) oversight processes of WP&C.
