This assessment evaluated the effectiveness of corrective actions at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) to resolve concerns, issues, and four recommendations identified in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Inspector General (OIG) February 2018 report DOE-OIG-18-20, DOE Office of Inspector General’s Inspection Report of the LANL Chronic Beryllium Disease Prevention Program. This Office of Enterprise Assessments assessment focused on the aspects of the LANL chronic beryllium disease prevention program identified in the OIG report, including beryllium inventories, hazard assessments and sampling plans, and released areas and archived records. In addition, the National Nuclear Security Administration Los Alamos Field Office (NA-LA) oversight activities associated with these areas were assessed.
