Description
 
The Dept. of Energy's (DOEńˇ╗s) National Nuclear Security Admin. (NNSA) manages the Plutonium Disposition program to dispose of surplus weapons-grade plutonium by burning it as MOX fuel -- a mixture of plutonium and uranium oxides -- in specially modified commercial nuclear reactors. In 2012, DOE forecasted cost increases of close to $3 billion over the previous estimates for the program's two construction projects, the MOX facility and the Waste Solidification Building (WSB) for disposing of waste from the MOX facility. This report examines: (1) drivers NNSA identified for the cost increases; (2) the extent to which NNSA analyzed underlying causes of the cost increases; (3) steps NNSA took to hold construction contractors accountable for their role, if any, in the cost increases; and (4) the extent to which NNSA's most recent estimates met cost- and schedule-estimating best practices. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
