Winokur Chairman Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board 625 Indiana Avenue NW, Suite 700 Washington, DC 20004 Dear Mr. Chairman: The Department of Energy (DOE) acknowledges receipt of Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board (Board) Recommendation 2014–01, Emergency Preparedness and Response, issued on September 3, 2014, and published in the Federal Register on September 23, 2014. The Department shares the Board’s view that actions are needed to improve emergency preparedness and response capabilities at its defense nuclear facilities. As stated in my August 5, 2014, letter to you, the Department’s emergency preparedness and response infrastructure, capabilities, and resources are of great importance to me and DOE’s senior leadership. Recommendation 2014–01 will complement the actions that the Department has already initiated to improve emergency management. I also stated that it is the Department’s responsibility to determine the requisite timeline to accomplish the actions in our Implementation Plan to address Board recommendations. I understand the Board’s enabling statute requires the Department to complete implementation of its plan within one year. I am placing a high priority on addressing the Recommendation; however, due to the complexity and broad reach of the Department’s actions, we probably will not be able to complete our corrective actions within one year, in which case we will make the necessary notifications prescribed by law. Therefore, with the exception of the ‘‘end of 2016’’ timeline, DOE accepts the remainder of sub-Recommendation 1 and all of sub-Recommendation 2. I share your intent to improve emergency management in the Department. In developing an Implementation Plan to address each specific action of this Recommendation, the Department will expeditiously proceed with improvements, accomplishing the highest priorities within a one-year period. We will prioritize efforts and will maintain a dialogue with your staff as we move forward to address your concerns. We appreciate the Board’s perspective and look forward to continued positive E:\FR\FM\01DEN1.SGM 01DEN1
