The Honorable A. J. Eggenberger
Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board

Dear Mr. Chairman:
Enclosed is the Office of Environment, Safety and Health Management System for Quality and Safety Management (EH MS) that completes Commitment 10A in the Implementation Plan for the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board Recommendation 2004-1.
The deliverable for this commitment also calls for “approved paths forward and schedules for achieving full implementation, including revision and implementation of field element Quality Assurance Programs”. The EH MS contains an Implementation Plan (IP) describing actions for full implementation. This IP will be maintained separately from the approved EH MS.
If you have any questions, please contact me (202-586-6151) or have your staff contact Bud Danielson (301-903-2954).
