Dear Mr. Chairman:
Please reference your January 27, 2004 letter to NNSA on the Conduct of Engineering and Implementation of DOE O 420.1A at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Enclosed please find two Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) responses concerning the Conduct of Engineering and Implementation of DOE O 420.1A, Facility Safety. The first enclosure provides a report on actions in progress to achieve institutional implementation of the conduct of engineering program and DOE O 420.1A at LANL.
The second enclosure contains the implementation schedule for completing these actions.
At this time the Los Alamos Site Office (LASO) considers this action closed. LASO will continue to provide the local DNFSB staff with updates as LANL continues to make progress towards full implementation of DOE O 420.1A.
If you have any questions, please feel have your staff contact Gerald Schlapper, Senior Safety Advisor for LASO at (505) 665-7111.
