Abstract

Nuclear materials management as conceived by the US Atomic Energy Commission is defined and its development traced from 1943 to the present time. The general programme is outlined and its principal features discussed. Emphasis is placed on administration of those portions of the USAEC programme which pertain to the development and maintenance of quantity data, the establishment of internal controls and the evaluation of performance. The current techniques whereby transfer data are recorded and processed within the USAEC are discussed in some detail, as are the techniques for presentation of material balance reports which periodically summarize the transactions and the results of operations. The techniques used by the USAEC to ascertain the effectiveness of the nuclear materials management programmes of its operating contractors are also discussed. In addition to material being held by contractors which operate USAEC-owned plants and laboratories, there are large quantities of special nuclear material held under a wide variety of financial and administrative arrangements, e.g. under lease, private ownership, under contract with the USAEC where the user is financially liable for losses, as well as those where the risk of losses is taken by the USAEC. This divergence of circumstances causes significant variation in the emphasis  More>>

This divergence of circumstances causes significant variation in the emphasis and approach used by the AEC and this variation is noted. A brief summary of unresolved problem areas concludes the presentation. (author) [French] L'auteur definit la gestion des matieres nucleaires telle qu'elle est concue par l'USAEC et decrit son evolution depuis 1943 jusqu'a nos jours. Il expose le programme general et discute ses principales caracteristiques. Le memoire souligne les aspects administratifs des parties du programme qui ont trait a la preparation et la tenue a jour des donnees relatives aux quantites, a l'application de controles internes et a l'evaluation de l'efficacite des mesures prises. L'auteur commente en detail la facon dont les donnees concernant les transferts sont enregistrees et traitees a l'USAEC, ainsi que les procedes utilises pour presenter la comptabilite matieres sous forme de rapports periodiques recapitulant les transactions et les resultats des operations. Il decrit egalement les moyens employes par l'USAEC pour determiner l'efficacite des programmes de gestion des matieres nucleaires appliques par les entreprises travaillant pour son compte. En plus des matieres detenues par les entrepreneurs qui dirigent les usines et laboratoires de l'USAEC, il y a de grandes quantites de matieres nucleaires speciales qui sont detenues selon des arrangements varies, par exemple location, propriete privee, contrats passes avec l'USAEC en vertu desquels l'utilisateur est financierement responsable des pertes ou, inverse Tient, prevoyant que l'USAEC assume les risques de perte. Du fait de cette diversite de conditions, l'USAEC prend des dispositions dont l'optique varie selon les elements de chaque cas. L'auteur fait etat de ces variations. Pour conclure, il note succinctement les domaines comportant des problemes encore a resoudre. (author) [Spanish] El autor expone los principios adoptados por la Comision de Energia Atomica de los Estados Unidos para la administracion de materiales nucleares y sigue la evolucion de esos principios desde 1943 hasta el momento actual. Describe el programa general y analiza sus principales caracteristicas, insistiendo especialmente en aquellas partes de dicho programa que se refieren a la obtencion y al registro de datos cuantitativos, al establecimiento de un control interno y a la evaluacion de los rendimientos. Explica con cierto detalle las tecnicas empleadas por la AEC para registrar y sistematizar los datos referentes a las transferencias, asf como las tecnicas de presentacion de informes sobre el balance de materiales en los que se resumen periodicamente las transacciones y los resultados de las operaciones. Trata tambien de los metodos seguidos por la AEC para asegurarse de la eficacia de los programas establecidos por sus contratistas para la administracion de los materiales nucleares. Ademas de las que se encuentran en poder de los contratistas que explotan plantas y laboratorios de la AEC, existen considerables cantidades de materiales nucleares especiales que son objeto de una gran variedad de arreglos de caracter financiero y administrativo: en arriendo, con el titulo de propiedad transferido, sujetos a contratos en virtud de los cuales el usuario es responsable economicamente de las perdidas o a acuerdos en los que se estipula que las perdidas recaen en la AEC. La memoria trata de la forma en que la AEC enfoca esas situaciones tan distintas y concluye con un breve resumen de los problemas que aun quedan por resolver. (author) [Russian] Opredeljaetsja oblast' obrashhenija s jadernymi materialami pod rukovodstvom Komissii po atomnoj jenergii SShA i izlagaetsja istorija razvitija jetoj otrasli proizvodstva s 1943 goda do nastojashhego vremeni.. Namechaetsja i obsuzhdaetsja v obshhih chertah osnovnaja programma. Upor delaetsja na osushhestvlenie teh chastej programmy KAJe SShA, kotorye imejut otnoshenie k razrabotke i hraneniju kolichestvennyh dannyh, ustanovleniju vnutrennego kontrolja i ocenke kachestva ispolnenija. Dovol'no podrobno obsuzhdajutsja primenjaemye v nastojashhee vremja metody registracii i obrabotki dannyh o peredache v ramkah KAJe, kak, naprimer, metody predstavlenija otchetov o balanse materialov, v kotoryh periodicheski obobshhajutsja perevody i rezul'taty operacij. Takzhe obsuzhdajutsja metody, primenjaemye KAJe dlja proverki jeffektivnosti programm podrjadchikov v oblasti obrashhenija s jadernymi materialami. Krome materiala, kotorym raspolagajut podrjadchiki, jekspluatirujushhie ustanovki i laboratorii, prinadlezhashhie KAJe, bol'shoe kolichestvo special'nogo rasshhepljajushhego materiala postupaet v ramkah ochen' raznoobraznyh finansovyh i administrativnyh meroprijatij, naprimer pri sdache v arendu, v sluchajah chastnoj sobstvennosti, po kontraktu s KAJe, kogda potrebitel' neset finansovuju otvetstvennost' za poteri, a takzhe po takim kontraktam, kogda otvetstvennost' za poteri beret na sebja KAJe. Takie razlichija porozhdajut znachitel'nye izmenenija v podhode k resheniju problemy, primenjaemomu KAJe, i takie izmenenija otmechajutsja. V zakljuchenie doklada kratko perechisljajutsja oblasti nereshennyh problem. (author)}
