Review of the Idaho Cleanup Project Integrated Waste Treatment Unit Federal Readiness Assessment at the Idaho Site

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) independent Office of Enterprise Assessments (EA) was established in May 2014 and assumed responsibility for managing the Department’s Independent Oversight Program for the Department’s former Office of Health, Safety and Security. The office now called the EA Office of Environment, Safety and Health Assessments conducted an independent review of the Integrated Waste Treatment Unit (IWTU) facility Federal readiness assessment (DOE-RA) at the Idaho Site beginning March 10-15, 2014, and ending after final input and feedback from the site on April 3, 2014. This assessment was intended to assess the effectiveness of the DOE-RA process as implemented for the IWTU restart.
