Dear Mr. Chairman:
In my May 23, 2003, response to your March 25, 2003 letter, regarding Software Quality Assurance (SQA) deficiencies at the Pantex Site Office (PXSO), we indicated that if all planned actions were not completed by February 28, 2004, we would provide you an update on the status. The enclosed PXSO memorandum indicates that BWXT has completed all the actions to improve the SQA of the Move Right System. The SQA lessons learned from the Move Right System are being applied and incorporated in the Interactive Electronic Procedure System.
This letter completes actions required in response to your letter of March 25, 2003.
If you have any questions, please contact me or have your staff contact Jeff Underwood at (301) 903-8303 or Steve Erhart at (806) 477-6150.
