Inspector General Report Identifies Ways To Improve NRC’s Safeguards Information Local Area Network and Electronic Safe

Stephen Dingbaum
Assistant Inspector General
 

oigThe Office of the Inspector General’s most recent report – Audit of NRC’s Safeguards Information Local Area Network and Electronic Safe (SLES) – is now available to the public. This audit set out to determine if the system used by the NRC for safeguards information, a special category of sensitive unclassified information, met the needs of the users and was secure.

The OIG found that NRC has developed a secure electronic system to store and manage safeguards information while also reducing paper SGI and the space needed to store SGI documents; however areas exist for improvement. Specifically, the system does not meet user needs and uses inconsistent access rights.

The OIG’s audit report makes recommendations to improve the agency’s SLES system. NRC management stated their agreement with the audit report and recommendations.

  1. Sir, Please search the NRC database for DAB Safety Team, we have submitted “too many” technical papers on the safety problems at San Onofre which have resulted in no fines (that I know of) to date! See this link for more: https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0BweZ3c0aFXcFZGpvRlo4aXJCT2s/edit?pli=1&docId=15V8BD4YK0MjwUV6gPZt6ILS_lP7CpClzgnZentLfx8U

    Here is our latest, a copy of which was sent to many at the NRC, including the Director, let me know, (my contact info is listed below) if you would like to be added to our email list, which is always sent out as Bcc and is never shared without your permission: https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0BweZ3c0aFXcFZGpvRlo4aXJCT2s/edit?pli=1&docId=1rmeut1NMP4Wh7j0GWJxoQVyeLEnsS7X-K2BaCcThLtc

    If this does not get your attention, I don’t know what will!
    Thanks in advance

  2. OIG has not recently reviewed fines given to operators and OIG does not have any information that this is a problem at this time. If you have information indicating a problem we would like to hear from you so we can consider conducting such a study.

  3. I’d like to hear more about how the IG of the NRC reviews the fines given to Operators that don’t follow the rules and hopefully you can provide a link to a listing of how they are calculated and when they were given to each Operator… If I remember correctly there was an IG report that said in essence that the NRC was rubber stamping industry documentation instead of producing their own rules in order to regulate the industry…

  4. The attached report seems to deal with Safety Training and not the subject of the BLOG.
