Dear Mr. Chairman:
This letter is to inform you of the status of commitment No. 4.1.2 in response to the Department of Energy Implementation Plan for the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board Recommendation 2002-l. The attached Safety Software Quality Assurance Functional Area Qualification Standard has been approved which establishes common functional area competency requirements for DOE personnel who provide assistance, direction, guidance, oversight, or evaluation of safety software. This completes the action under this commitment and I propose closure of the commitment.
If you have any further questions, please contact me at (509) 376-6677.
