Dear Mr. Chairman:
Enclosed for your information is the approved National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Office of Defense Programs (NA-10) Corrective Action Plan (CAP) in response to the Chief, Defense Nuclear Safety (CDNS) review report that was issued in November 2007. The CAP, originally due in January 2008, was delayed until after approval of the NA- 10 reorganization to ensure that it reflected the new organizational structure. The NA-10 Reorganization Plan was approved on May 6, 2008. The CAP, approved by the NNSA Administrator on July 8, 2008, is intended to address the seven management concerns, as well as all other findings and weaknesses, identified in the CDNS review report.
If you have any questions about the CAP, please contact me or Mr. James McConnell of the Office of Safety at (202) 586-4379.
Gerald L. Talbot, Jr.
Assistant Deputy Administrator
for Nuclear Safety and Operations
