Independent Oversight Focused Program Review, Argonne National Laboratory-West - May 2001

May 2001

Focused Program Review at Argonne National Laboratory-West

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Emergency Management Oversight, within the Secretary of Energy’s Office of Independent Oversight and Performance Assurance, conducted a focused review of the emergency management program at Argonne National Laboratory-West (ANL-W) in May 2001.

There were two primary objectives for this review: to evaluate the extent to which the emergency planning hazards assessment (EPHA) document serves as an effective foundation for the ANL-W emergency management program, and to determine whether the necessary interfaces have been established among responsible DOE and contractor entities for effective implementation of the ANL-W emergency management program.
