Dear Mr. Chairman:
The purpose of this letter is to provide status on the Quality Assurance Improvement Plan (QAIP), and to report completion of deliverables 1.1.2 and 1.2.2. QAIP 1.1.2 required that an Environmental Management (EM) Team review DNFSB 2000-2 Phase I and II assessments and develop recommendations and corrective action plans, as required. Attachment 1 documents the review and actions. QAIP 1.2.2 required development of a schedule for follow-on vital safety system reviews. This has been completed and EM would be happy to review these schedules with your staff.
As the purpose of the QAIP is for continuous improvement of our processes, we will use the results of our assessments to continue to improve our operations and our operational performance. If you have any further questions, please call me or Mr. Paul Golan, Chief Operating Officer, Environmental Management, at (202) 586-0738.
