Improvements needed in EPA's Inspector General operations  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

At the request of the Subcommittee on Natural Resources, Agriculture Research and Environment and the Subcommittee on Civil Service, House of Representatives, GAO reviewed the operations of the Office of Inspector General, Environmental Protection Agency, under the leadership of former Inspector General Matthew Novick. GAO found that although most investigations appear to have been handled properly, in some cases all relevant matters were not followed up and consistently addressed. GAO also noted the need to use investigative resources more effectively and to provide more balanced audit coverage. Acting Inspector General Charles Dempsey recognized and made a concerted effort to correct many problems during his tenure. GAO recommends further actions to strengthen inspector general operations at EPA.

Office of Inspector General: Semiannual report to the Congress, April 1-September 30, 1987  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Office of Inspector General's audit, investigation, and inspection activities are directed toward helping the Department improve its operations and to detect and prevent fraud, waste, and mismanagement. During this reporting period, we issued 196 audit reports. As a result of reviews of cost proposals and contract billings, we determined that $66.4 million in costs were either unallowable or unsupported. Investigations of wrongdoing led to 12 referrals for prosecution, 5 convictions, 3 indictments, and 7 disciplinary actions. Other initiatives by this Office have produced recommendations to improve the Department's operations to recover funds and to more efficiently use funds. These recommendations amounted to about $158 million.

Inspector General audit report on Transportation Safeguards Division courier work schedules and escort vehicle replacements  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Office of Inspector General`s (OIG) April 1995 report found that couriers received too much overtime and incurred too much unproductive time. This finding occurred because the Transportation Safeguards Division (TSD) employed a traditional work schedule that did not meet the demands of the job. The report recommended implementing an alternative work schedule that corresponded more closely to the couriers` actual work requirements. Management agreed to conduct a comparative analysis of work schedules to evaluate potential savings. The objectives of this audit were to (1) follow up on actions taken as a result of the OIG`s previous report, (2) determine if courier work schedules are cost effective, and (3) determine the cost effectiveness of escort vehicle replacements. The authors recommend: (1) implementing an alternative work schedule for courier which would achieve savings in overtime and unproductive time, while efficiently and cost effectively fulfilling TSD`s mission; (2) reexamining and adjusting the staffing level of each courier section in relation to the workload requirements in the area; and (3) discontinuing payment for travel time between courier lodging and temporary duty stations. The Albuquerque Operations Office agreed with the auditor`s findings and recommendations.

Office of Inspector General Strategic Plan Fiscal Years 2009 through 2013  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Department of Energy (Department) Organization Act created the Department in October 1977. That law brought together for the first time, not only most of the government's energy programs, but also science and technology programs and defense responsibilities that included the design, construction, and testing of nuclear weapons. Over its history, the Department has shifted its emphasis and focus as the energy and security needs of the Nation have changed. Today, the Department stands at the forefront of helping the Nation meet our energy, scientific, environmental, and national security goals. The responsibility of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) is to ensure that the Department is: Fulfilling its program and operational goals effectively; Using its resources efficiently in this pursuit; Operating within the scope of its legislative mandates; Meeting the President's Management Agenda; and, Addressing Departmental priorities established by the Secretary. The OIG accomplishes this by performing audits, investigations, and inspections of the Department's programs and operations seeking to uncover existing or potential weaknesses that could result in fraud, waste, and abuse. This strategic plan reflects the vision for how the organization will move forward in the 21st century to ensure the Department continues to serve the American public safely, effectively, and efficiently. Through its strategic planning efforts, the OIG will continue to play a critical role in assisting the Department's leadership and the Congress by identifying opportunities for improving management, program performance, and accountability. The OIG's strategic goal is to perform a robust review program that provides timely, relevant performance information and recommendations to improve the performance of the Department's programs and operations, facilitate positive change, and combat unlawful activities within the Department.

U.S. Department of Energy Office of Inspector General report on audit of selected aspects of the unclassified computer security program at a DOE headquarters computing facility  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The purpose of this audit was to evaluate the effectiveness of the unclassified computer security program at the Germantown Headquarters Administrative Computer Center (Center). The Department of Energy (DOE) relies on the application systems at the Germantown Headquarters Administrative Computer Center to support its financial, payroll and personnel, security, and procurement functions. The review was limited to an evaluation of the administrative, technical, and physical safeguards governing utilization of the unclassified computer system which hosts many of the Department`s major application systems. The audit identified weaknesses in the Center`s computer security program that increased the risk of unauthorized disclosure or loss of sensitive data. Specifically, the authors found that (1) access to sensitive data was not limited to individuals who had a need for the information, and (2) accurate and complete information was not maintained on the inventory of tapes at the Center. Furthermore, the risk of unauthorized disclosure and loss of sensitive data was increased because other controls, such as physical security, had not been adequately implemented at the Center. Management generally agreed with the audit conclusions and recommendations, and initiated a number of actions to improve computer security at the Center.

Use of sustainability appraisal by English planning inspectors and judges  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This article considers how sustainability appraisals (SA - an English form of SEA that also considers social and economic issues) are treated at the end of the plan-making process: by planning inspectors who review plans before they are adopted, and by judges in the case of legal challenge to plans and their SAs. It briefly describes the role of inspectors and judges, and how their decisions influence SA. It presents the conclusions of 81 planning inspectors' reports about local authority development plans and their SAs, including three cases where inspectors required further SA information and reasons given by inspectors for not challenging the legal adequacy of other SAs. The three main successful English legal challenges to SA are then summarised. Planning inspectors seemed prone, until recently, to not challenge even quite poor quality SAs. This seems to be changing in the wake of recent court judgements, and in turn is affecting planners' SA practice. However it is unclear whether these changes will affect only the procedural aspects of SA or also planners' and inspectors' 'hearts and minds'. - Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Inspectors tend to err in favour of the submitted plan, even where its sustainability or the quality of its SA is dubious. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer In contrast to inspectors, judges seem to be taking a broad and rigorous view of SEA requirements. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Planners and inspectors are changing their behaviour to avoid legal challenge.

Improvements needed in the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Office of Inspector and Auditor. Report to the Congress  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

To help the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) carry out its responsibilities, a special office of Inspector and Auditor was created in April 1975 to independently review and appraise all NRC operations. This office, in essence, was to provide the Commissioners with oversight over NRC programs and activities and recommend corrective actions. GAO found that the Office of Inspector and Auditor has not been using proven management techniques in scheduling and carrying out its work. These techniques range from systematic planning and prioritization to timely and consistent followup on work. If such techniques were used, it would result in a more orderly management approach and lead to higher quality reports and a better use of staff resources. The independence of the Office of Inspector and Auditor needs to be strengthened. In GAO's view, this only may be possible if NRC accepts and implements the recommendations contained in this report. GAO also suggests that Congress consider establishing a statutory Inspector General office at the NRC. Such an office could help ensure that the Congress and the Commissioners receive objective information on problems within the Commission and enhance public trust in the regulation of commercial nuclear power.

The Stored Waste Autonomous Mobile Inspector (SWAMI)  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A mobile robot system called Stored Waste Autonomous Mobile Inspector (SWAMI) is under development by the Savannah River Technology Center (SRTC) Robotics Group of Westinghouse Savannah River Company (WSRC) to perform mandated inspections of waste drums stored in warehouse facilities. The system will reduce personnel exposure to potential hazards and create accurate, high-quality documentation to ensure regulatory compliance and enhance waste management operations. Development work is coordinated among several Department of Energy (DOE), academic, and commercial entities in accordance wit DOE`s technology transfer initiative. The prototype system, SWAMI I, was demonstrated at Savannah River Site (SRS) in November, 1993. SWAMI II is now under development for field trails at the Fernald site.

Manual for training reclamation inspectors in the fundamentals of hydrology  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This handbook is intended to be a desk reference to help nonhydrologists achieve a basic understanding of hydrology as it relates to surface mining and reclamation. Surface coal mining and reclamation inspectors and other staff will find it useful in implementing regulatory programs. The handbook is not meant to be a comprehensive treatment of the subject. The handbook can be used in the training of surface-mining and reclamation inspectors, both Federal and State, and as a basic reference for inspectors in carrying out their assigned duties. The handbook describes clues and indicators of potential problems, suggests ways to prevent or mitigate them, and discusses various observation and sampling techniques.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The following two sections highlight selected audits and investigations completed during this reporting period. More detailed summaries appear in subsequent sections of this report. (1) The NRC initiated a number of actions to address regulatory weaknesses. The OIG found that some of these actions may not produce a safety benefit commensurate with their cost. The OIG also found that meanings of several important regulatory terms are unclear to many NRC and licensee staff. The OIG believes a comprehensive, integrated plan could help focus agency resources on those issues with the most safety significance, and that a focus on plant safety will enhance the NRC`s credibility as an effective regulator. (2) Because of its wide-ranging potential impact, the OIG has been tracking the Year 2000 issue for some time. The OIG found that success of the NRC`s Year 2000 program could be enhanced. (3) In response to a memorandum from the NRC Chairman, the Acting Chief Financial Officer proposed an approach to developing an agency-wide, integrated financial management system. The OIG initiated an evaluation to identify and gain an understanding of the best practices for developing such a system, and recommended directions. The NRC sponsors a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) called the Center for Nuclear Waste Regulatory Analyses, which provides the NRC with long-term technical assistance and research related to the High-Level Waste program. The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) requires that, prior to extending the contract for the FFRDC, sponsors conduct a comprehensive review of their use and need. The OIG found that the draft renewal justification assesses some, but not all, of the FAR considerations.

Lagrangian theory of gravitational instability of Friedman-Lemaitre cosmologies - generic third-order model for non-linear clustering  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The Lagrangian perturbation theory on Friedman-Lemaitre cosmologies investigated and solved up to the second order in earlier papers (Buchert 1992, Buchert \\& Ehlers 1993) is evaluated up to the third order. On its basis a model for non-linear clustering applicable to the modeling of large-scale structure in the Universe for generic initial conditions is formulated. A truncated model is proposed which represents the ``main body'' of the perturbation sequence in the early non-linear regime by neglecting all gravitational sources which describe interaction of the perturbations. However, I also give the irrotational solutions generated by the interaction terms to the third order, which induce vorticity in Lagrangian space. The consequences and applicability of the solutions are put into perspective. In particular, the model presented enables the study of previrialization effects in gravitational clustering and the onset of non-dissipative gravitational turbulence within the cluster environment.

Office of Inspector General report on audit of Department of Energy management and operating contractor available fees  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Office of Procurement and Assistance Management has proposed changes to the method used to annually calculate and negotiate ``for profit`` management and operating contractor available fees. This proposal will increase contractor fees in exchange for the contractor`s purported assumption of additional risk. In 1991, the Department, through the Accountability Rule, increased contractor fees as an incentive to improve contractor performance and accountability. Despite the lack of measurable benefits of this effort, the Department is crafting a new fee policy which will, depending upon how it is executed, increase fees above the amount provided through the Accountability Rule as an incentive to the Department`s management and operating contractors. The objective of the audit was to determine whether the Department`s proposed change to the fee structure for determining management and operating contractor fees will be cost effective. This report describes the study`s approach, its findings and recommendations, management and auditor comments, and includes appendices with further data.

U.S. Department of Energy Office of Inspector General report on inspection of analytical laboratories oversight at the Strategic Petroleum Reserve  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Department of Energy`s (DOE) Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy has overall programmatic responsibility for the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR). The SPR Project Management Office (SPRPMO), located in New Orleans, Louisiana, and under the direction of the Project Manager, manages day-to-day project activities. The SPR currently has five underground crude oil storage facilities, and one marine terminal, on or near the Gulf Coasts of Texas and Louisiana. The purpose of this inspection was to review oversight of M and O and subcontractor laboratories performing analyses on samples taken for SPR environmental compliance and oil quality purposes. During this inspection, the M and O contractor operated on-site environmental laboratories at four of the SPR storage facilities, and oil quality laboratories at two of the facilities. The number of subcontractor laboratories varies depending on the need for analytical support. The objective of this inspection was to determine if the SPRPMO had implemented management systems to provide adequate oversight of M and O contractor analytical laboratory activities, as well as to ensure effective oversight of subcontractor analytical laboratories.

Office of Inspector General audit report on the U.S. Department of Energy`s management of Associated Western Universities grant programs  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Department of Energy (DOE), recognizing the need to maintain a strong science and engineering base at a time when enrollments in these disciplines were declining, implemented several educational programs. Among these were educational programs to provide faculty and students of US colleges and universities with energy-related training and research experience. Associated Western Universities (AWU), a nonprofit organization, administered post-secondary educational programs for DOE through grants and, occasionally, subcontracts. The objectives of the audit were to determine whether: (1) DOE was achieving its goal of enhancing US science and engineering education and (2) AWU was appropriately accumulating and classifying its costs. It was found that DOE was not fully achieving its objective of enhancing science and engineering education for students of US colleges and universities. In addition, it was found that AWU had not complied with cost principles for nonprofit organizations as required under the terms of the grants. Specifically, AWU misclassified a $13,000 overrun of direct program cost as indirect cost, incurred $40,000 of idle facility costs that were unallowable under the terms of the grant, misclassified indirect costs as direct costs, and claimed reimbursement for consultant costs that were inappropriate under the terms of the consulting contract. These discrepancies resulted in $53,000 of questionable costs, as well as costs having been charged to the Office of Energy Research (ER) grant that should have been charged to the Richland and Idaho grants. The authors recommended that the Managers of the Richland and Idaho Operations offices take actions to ensure that the objectives of DOE`s educational programs are met. In addition, they recommended that the Manager, Idaho Operations Office, direct the Contracting Officer to have AWU comply with the appropriate cost principles for nonprofit organizations.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Department of Energy and Florida International University (FIU), a state university, cosponsored the X-Change 1997: The Global D and D Marketplace conference (X-Change Conference) that was held December 1--5, 1997, in Miami, Florida. The purpose of the conference was to disseminate information on decontamination and decommissioning problems, solutions, and technologies to an international audience of government, industry, and academia. Through a contract with the Department, FIU was responsible for conference planning, organization, and logistical support. FIU awarded a subcontract to ICF, Inc. to work on the conference. ICF, Inc. is a major Department contractor with responsibilities for projects at Hanford, Argonne National laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory. The audit objectives were to determine whether FIU had controls in place to ensure that public funds were used appropriately, and whether fiscal practices associated with the conference were consistent with Government requirements and Department policy. FIU implemented accounting and budget mechanisms to identify and control the sources and uses of funds. However, the absence of a Departmental policy on funding conferences resulted in questionable fiscal practices associated with the conference. These are discussed.

Generalizing the autonomous Kepler Ermakov system in a Riemannian space  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We generalize the two dimensional autonomous Hamiltonian Kepler Ermakov dynamical system to three dimensions using the sl(2,R) invariance of Noether symmetries and determine all three dimensional autonomous Hamiltonian Kepler Ermakov dynamical systems which are Liouville integrable via Noether symmetries. Subsequently we generalize the autonomous Kepler Ermakov system in a Riemannian space which admits a gradient homothetic vector by the requirements (a) that it admits a first integral (the Riemannian Ermakov invariant) and (b) it has sl(2,R) invariance. We consider both the non-Hamiltonian and the Hamiltonian systems. In each case we compute the Riemannian Ermakov invariant and the equations defining the dynamical system. We apply the results in General Relativity and determine the autonomous Hamiltonian Riemannian Kepler Ermakov system in the spatially flat Friedman Robertson Walker spacetime. We consider a locally rotational symmetric (LRS) spacetime of class A and discuss two cosmological models. The first cosmological model consists of a scalar field with exponential potential and a perfect fluid with a stiff equation of state. The second cosmological model is the f(R) modified gravity model of {\\Lambda}_{bc}CDM. It is shown that in both applications the gravitational field equations reduce to those of the generalized autonomous Riemannian Kepler Ermakov dynamical system which is Liouville integrable via Noether integrals.

ARIES: A mobile robot inspector  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

ARIES (Autonomous Robotic Inspection Experimental System) is a mobile robot inspection system being developed for the Department of Energy (DOE) to survey and inspect drums containing mixed and low-level radioactive waste stored in warehouses at DOE facilities. The drums are typically stacked four high and arranged in rows with three-foot aisle widths. The robot will navigate through the aisles and perform an autonomous inspection operation, typically performed by a human operator. It will make real-time decisions about the condition of the drums, maintain a database of pertinent information about each drum, and generate reports.

Generalized Galilean Genesis  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The galilean genesis scenario is an alternative to inflation in which the universe starts expanding from Minkowski in the asymptotic past by violating the null energy condition stably. Several concrete models of galilean genesis have been constructed so far within the context of galileon-type scalar-field theories. We give a generic, unified description of the galilean genesis scenario in terms of the Horndeski theory, i.e., the most general scalar-tensor theory with second-order field equations. In doing so we generalize the previous models to have a new parameter (denoted by {\\alpha}) which results in controlling the evolution of the Hubble rate. The background dynamics is investigated to show that the generalized galilean genesis solution is an attractor, similarly to the original model. We also study the nature of primordial perturbations in the generalized galilean genesis scenario. In all the models described by our generalized genesis Lagrangian, amplification of tensor perturbations does not occur as ...

Symmetric generalized binomial distributions  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In two recent articles, we have examined a generalization of the binomial distribution associated with a sequence of positive numbers, involving asymmetric expressions of probabilities that break the symmetry win-loss. We present in this article another generalization (always associated with a sequence of positive numbers) that preserves the symmetry win-loss. This approach is also based on generating functions and presents constraints of non-negativeness, similar to those encountered in our previous articles.
