New - DOE O 413.3B Chg 2 (PgChg), Program and Project Management for the Acquisition of Capital Assets— by Patricia Greeson — last modified May 17, 2016 03:52 PM
The purpose of this Order is to a) provide the Department of Energy (DOE) Elements, including the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), with program and project management direction for the acquisition of capital assets with the goal of delivering projects within the original performance baseline (PB), cost and schedule, and fully capable of meeting mission performance, safeguards and security, and environmental, safety, and health requirements unless impacted by a directed change; and b) implement Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circulars to include: A-11, Part 7, Capital Programming Guide, which prescribes new requirements and leading practices for project and acquisition management; A-123, Management's Responsibility for Internal Control, which defines management's responsibility for internal control in Federal agencies; and A-131, Value Engineering, which requires that all Federal agencies use Value Engineering (VE) as a management tool. Supersedes DOE O 413.3B Chg 1 (AdminChg)
The Order establishes safety requirements for the proper packaging and transportation of offsite shipments and onsite transfers of radioactive and other hazardous materials, and for modal transportation.
The Order establishes DOE-specific policy and principles for the protection of human subjects involved in DOE research, and DOE procedures and responsibilities for implementing the policy and requirements set forth in Title 45 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 46, Protection of Human Subjects, and 10 CFR Part 745, Protection of Human Subjects. Supersedes DOE O 443.1B.
The purpose of this directive is to ensure that STI is appropriately managed as part of the DOE mission to enable the advancement of scientific knowledge and technological innovation. Supersedes DOE O 241.1A and DOE O 241.1A Chg 1.
To provide the Department of Energy policy for the development, management, and administration of the DOE Emergency Management System.
The DBT Policy (formerly Graded Security Protection (GSP) Policy) establishes intelligence community informed security performance metrics but is not a threat statement or an intelligence assessment. The policy is designed to represent a stable set of goals for the planning and implementation of Departmental safeguards and security programs for the next 3 - 5 years. The policy embodies risk management by defining the parameters of credible threats that must be addressed, further adjustments to Department-wide performance standards may be justified by specific site and/or mission imperatives. DOE’s security risk management philosophy is based on establishing and maintaining a graded approach and defense-in-depth safeguards and security program. Several factors were identified during the 2015 GSP annual review which highlighted the need to update the policy in terms of the risk management considerations, which include the consequence posed by the loss, theft, and/or unauthorized use of an asset; intelligence pertaining to current and future objectives and characteristics of adversaries. The 2008 GSP policy is beyond the predicated intelligence life-cycle and requires a revision.
It is necessary to update the current version of this directive due to lack of consistent application and understanding of its provisions. DOE employees, program officials and managers, as well as employees of major facilities contractors, have indicated to OIG personnel that the directive, as currently written, is not sufficiently clear with respect to the nature and extent of cooperation with the OIG that is required.
The Order establishes requirements for the management and operation of the DOE Federal Protective Forces (FPF), Contractor Protective Forces (CPF), and the Physical Security of property and personnel under the cognizance of DOE. Supersedes DOE O 473.3. NOTE: Safeguards and Security Alarm Management and Control Systems, of DOE O 473.3, is retained as Attachment 3, Annex 1.
Cancellation of DOE G 481.1-1, Work for Others Guide, dated 9-24-97
The manual provides detailed packaging requirements for protecting workers from exposure to nuclear materials stored outside of an approved engineered contamination barrier. Supersedes DOE M 441.1-1, dated 3-7-08.
The Safeguards and Security Program ensures that the Department of Energy efficiently and effectively meets all its obligations to protect Special Nuclear Material, other nuclear materials, classified matter, sensitive information, government property and facilities, and the safety and security of employees, contractors, and the general public.
