Independent Oversight Review, Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site - March 2000

March 2000

Review of the Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site Transportation Emergency Management Program

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Emergency Management Oversight, within the Office of Independent Oversight and Performance Assurance, conducted a transportation emergency management review and a follow-up review of the emergency management program at Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site (RFETS) in February 2000.

The primary purpose of this review was to assess the effectiveness of the Department’s emergency management programs for transportation events involving hazardous materials (not related to transuranic waste or nuclear weapons components) and to determine the adequacy of direction provided by DOE line management to sites under their cognizance.
