To supplement its health physics staff, Brookhaven National Laboratory (Brookhaven) subcontracted
with a support service business (the subcontractor) to obtain the services of health physics technicians.
During the performance of these subcontracts, certain issues arose concerning per diem payments to the
subcontractor for local technicians. The objective of this audit was to determine whether Brookhaven
fully enforced the terms and conditions of its subcontracts for health physics technicians.
