Abstract:

The legacy of World War II and Cold War weapons development and manufacturing is a monumental environmental cleanup program that is being managed primarily by the Department of Energy DoE. This program has been consistently recognized for the challenges it faces in cost growth. Our research identifies the unique operational characteristics in which the program must be carried out. A model identifying remediation cost drivers is developed. A review of best practices from industry and Department of Defense remediation efforts identifies actionable opportunities from among identified cost drivers.
