- Full Report:
The effectiveness of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC) information-gathering program could be improved.
The NRC has several procedures that contribute to effective information gathering, but the program operates informally and problems can occur in the absence of management controls.
Recommendation for Executive Action
Comments: Please call 202/512-6100 for additional information.
Recommendation: The NRC should: (1) establish a formal data collection program that designates duties and responsibilities of the offices and bureaus involved in the acquisition process and incorporates the critical management controls; (2) place the information clearance function at an organizational level where it can make final, independent decisions; and (3) appoint information clearance representatives in the offices and bureaus which initiate requirements to act as liaison with the information clearance officer.
