Dear Mr. Chairman:
This is the final evaluation required to satisfy the first commitment in your November 3, 2004, letter. Enclosed is a memorandum from the Livermore Site Office (LSO) that forwards the report on LSO’s evaluation of the application of configuration management specific to the vital safety systems in the remaining defense nuclear facilities (Buildings 331, 334, 239, 251 and Radioactive Hazardous Waste Management). On December 22, 2004, LSO transmitted to you the Building 332 Vital Safety System Evaluation. LLNL will complete its resource-loaded schedule for implementing a configuration management program for vital safety systems in Building 332 by September 1, 2005. LLNL will complete its resource-loaded schedule for implementing a configuration management program for vital safety systems in other LLNL defense nuclear facilities no later than September 15, 2005. We will transmit these schedules to you when they are complete. If you have any questions please contact me or have your staff contact Mike Thompson at 301-903-5648.
