John C. Barnes of Savannah River Operations named 2012 Facility Representative of the Year

About 200 Department of Energy (DOE) federal employees are Facility Representatives (FR) who provide day-to-day oversight of contractor operations at DOE facilities. Each year the Department presents the FR of the Year Award to recognize superior service. Mr. John C. Barnes from the Savannah River Operations Office was selected from a field of sixteen nominees as the 2012 DOE FR of the Year. He is responsible for operational oversight of key facilities at the Savannah River Site, including the F and H-Canyons and the HB-Line.

These facilities conduct hazardous nuclear chemistry, packaging, and processing operations on plutonium and transuranic materials. Mr. Barnes received a plaque and certificate from the Secretary of Energy in recognition of his outstanding safety oversight work.
