Abstract:

In view of the billions of dollars that the government will spend treating this waste, you requested that we assess the implications of DOES revised approach. Our testimony today discusses 1 how DOEs current approach has changed from its original privatization strategy 2 how this change has affected the projects schedule, cost, and estimated savings over conventional DOE approaches 3 what risks DOE is now assuming with this change in approach and 4 what steps DOE is taking to carry out its responsibilities for overseeing the project.
