The Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, TN, is the Nat. Nuclear Security Admin.s (NNSA) site for conducting enriched uranium activities, producing uranium-related components for nuclear warheads and bombs, and processing nuclear fuel for the U.S. Navy. According to NNSA, the Y-12 plants current enriched uranium operations (1) have an inefficient workflow due to the patchwork of facilities and equipment; (2) experience continually rising operations and maintenance costs and frequent outages and work interruptions due to facility age and deterioration; and (3) involve processes that could expose workers to radiological contamination, among other things. In 2004, NNSA decided to construct the Uranium Processing Facility (UPF) adjacent to the Highly Enriched Uranium Materials Facility (HEUMF) the nations central repository for such material and the facilities are to be joined. GAO reported in Nov. 2010 that UPF had experienced significant cost increases. More recently, the upper bound of the UPFs cost range has increased from approx. $1.1 billion in 2004 to $6.5 billion in 2012. This report identifies factors that contributed to UPFs cost increase. This is a print on demand report.
