Dear Mr. Chairman:
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) has approved the enclosed Los Alamos Site Office (LASO) Functions, Responsibilities, and Authorities Manual (FRAM) of March 2006. Our original commitment to revise this FRAM relates to Board recommendation 2002-1 and incorporation of Federal responsibilities and authorities for Software Quality Assurance. With approval of the LASO FRAM, recent revisions to all NNSA Site Office FRAMs are now approved (see my previous letter to you dated September 9, 2005).
If you have any questions, please contact Rabi Singh at (301) 903-5864.
