Assessment of Radioactive Waste Management at the Nevada National Security Site Interim Report 

This assessment is in response to the Deputy Secretary of Energy’s July 9, 2019, memorandum directing the Office of Enterprise Assessments (EA) to undertake a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)-wide assessment of the procedures and practices for packaging and shipping radioactive waste. The assessment activities focused on waste management performance at the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS), as implemented by the management and operating (M&O) contractor, Mission Support and Test Services, LLC (MSTS), and the environmental management contractor, Navarro Environmental Program Services (NEPS). In addition, the assessment evaluated NNSS activities conducted by Los Alamos National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory that generate radioactive waste, and the associated waste management support provided by MSTS.
