U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Order 430.1B, Real Property Asset Management, calls for the agency to "establish a corporate, holistic, and performance-based approach to real property life-cycle asset management." It discusses requirements to properly plan, acquire, maintain, recapitalize, and dispose of assets, while recognizing the importance of stakeholder involvement, privatization, cultural and natural preservation, and local economic development.
This directive is proposed for revision to reflect the establishment of the Office of Enterprise Assessments (EA) by Secretary Moniz in May 2014, and the Secretary's expectations for the enterprise-wide internal management assessment function performed by EA as articulated in his June 27, 2014, memorandum to all Departmental Elements.
The Office of Nuclear Safety consulted field and Headquarters (HQ) offices on whether or not a revision is warranted for DOE O 426.2. As a result, certain aspects of DOE O 426.2 were identified as needing clarification and revision. Based on this feedback, the revision is intended to clarify educational requirements, certification requirements, and applicability. Addressing these concerns should improve operating training programs, and result in less time focused on managing ambiguous or possibly unnecessary requirements.
Recent events have revealed that there are organizations that are seeking to insert malicious software and/or components into the nuclear weapon supply chain that can alter functionality of the weapon and possibly cause DAU.
Effective January 2012, please be aware that a new template is to be used for processing Justification Memoranda. The April 2011 version is no longer valid. You may find this template on the Directives Templates.
Effective immediately the following Department of Energy directive is canceled. DOE M 452.2-2, Nuclear Explosive Safety Evaluation Processes, dated 04-14-2009.
The objective of this Order is to define the requirements for establishing and implementing Conduct of Operations Programs at Department of Energy (DOE), including National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), facilities and projects. A Conduct of Operations Program consists of formal documentation, practices, and actions implementing disciplined and structured operations that support mission success and promote worker, public, and environmental protection. The goal is to minimize the likelihood and consequences of human fallibility or technical and organizational system failures. Conduct of Operations is one of the safety management programs recognized in the Nuclear Safety Rule [Title 10 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 830, Nuclear Safety Management], but it also supports safety and mission success for a wide range of hazardous, complex, or mission-critical operations, and some conduct of operations attributes can enhance even routine operations. It supports the Integrated Safety
Management (ISM) System by providing concrete techniques and practices to implement the ISM Core Functions of Develop and Implement Hazard Controls and Perform Work Within Controls. It may be implemented through facility policies, directives, plans, and safety management systems and need not be a stand-alone program.
All nuclear explosives and nuclear explosive operations require special safety, security, and use control consideration because of the potentially unacceptable consequences of an accident or unauthorized act; therefore, a Nuclear Explosive and Weapon Surety (NEWS) Program is established to prevent unintended/unauthorized detonation and deliberate unauthorized use of nuclear explosives.
This Department of Energy (DOE) Order establishes requirements to implement the nuclear explosive safety (NES) elements of DOE O 452.1D, Nuclear Explosive and Weapon Surety Program, or successor directive, for routine and planned nuclear explosive operations (NEOs).
The Policy states DOE's expectation regarding the prevention of all forms of violence (to include physical and psychological) within the DOE workplace and providing support and assistance to employees whose lives are affected by workplace violence.
The purpose of this Policy is to set the context in which DOE and its laboratories, plants, and sites should pursue Strategic Partnership Projects (SSP) with other Federal government agencies, state and local institutions, universities, foreign entities and/or private companies. The Policy is applicable to the DOE laboratories, plants, and sites, and to the DOE programs that own them and facilitate their work.
The purpose of the administrative change is to provide the EK pay plan with continuous locality pay coverage as a result of an administrative change to the EK pay plan legislation.
