To control this accumulation, agency records managers prepare schedules proposing retention periods for records and submit these schedules for NARA’s approval. Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on what PO 00000 Frm 00089 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 happens to records when no longer needed for current Government business. The records schedules authorize agencies to preserve records of continuing value in the National Archives or to destroy, after a specified period, records lacking continuing administrative, legal, research, or other value. Some schedules are comprehensive and cover all the records of an agency or one of its major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one office or program or a few series of records. Many of these update previously approved schedules, and some include records proposed as permanent. Agencies may not destroy Federal records without the approval of the Archivist of the United States. The Archivist grants this approval only after thorough consideration of the records’ administrative use by the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private people directly affected by the Government’s activities, and whether or not the records have historical or other value.

Dr. Melinda Krahenbuhl is the former Director of the Reed College, Reed Research Reactor (RRR) located in Portland, Oregon.

The license authorizes the operation of the RRR in accordance with conditions specified therein. This Confirmatory Order (CO) is the result of an agreement reached during an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mediation session conducted on June 22, 2020. II. On April 8, 2016, the NRC’s Office of Investigations (OI) opened an investigation (OI Case No. 4–2016–022) at Reed to determine whether the RRR Director (Director) willfully documented and submitted to the NRC incomplete or inaccurate information associated with an application for a 10 CFR part 55 reactor operator license. A second investigation (OI Case No. 4–2017–023) at Reed was opened on March 28, 2017, to determine whether the Director willfully provided incomplete or inaccurate information to the NRC regarding an application for a 10 CFR part 55 license (a senior reactor operator license). In a letter dated November 20, 2019 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML20044E056), the NRC notified Dr. Krahenbuhl of the apparent violations identified during the investigations. On January 10, 2020, the NRC held a predecisional enforcement conference (PEC) with Dr. Krahenbuhl and her representative at its headquarters facility in Rockville, Maryland, to obtain additional information regarding the apparent violations. On March 16, 2020, the NRC issued Order IA–19–035 (ADAMS Accession No. ML20064F133) suspending Dr. Krahenbuhl’s senior reactor operator license (License No. SOP–70678–1) issued pursuant to 10 CFR part 55 and prohibiting Dr. Krahenbuhl from any involvement in NRC-licensed activities for a period of 3 years. The Order also provided her the opportunity to request a hearing within 30 days of Order issuance or request ADR mediation with the NRC in an effort to resolve any disputes regarding the violations, appropriate enforcement actions, and appropriate corrective actions. In response to the Order, Dr. Krahenbuhl requested the use of ADR mediation. On June 22, 2020, the NRC, Dr. Krahenbuhl, and her representatives participated in a virtual ADR session that was mediated by a professional mediator, arranged through Cornell University’s Institute on Conflict Resolution.

Background

    Each year, Federal agencies create billions of records. To control 
this accumulation, agency records managers prepare schedules proposing 
retention periods for records and submit these schedules for NARA's 
approval. Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory 
instructions on what happens to records when no longer needed for 
current Government business. The records schedules authorize agencies 
to preserve records of continuing value in the National Archives or to 
destroy, after a specified period, records lacking continuing 
administrative, legal, research, or other value. Some schedules are 
comprehensive and cover all the records of an agency or one of its 
major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one 
office or program or a few series of records. Many of these update 
previously approved schedules, and some include records proposed as 
permanent.
    Agencies may not destroy Federal records without the approval of 
the Archivist of the United States. The Archivist grants this approval 
only after thorough consideration of the records' administrative use by 
the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private 
people directly affected by the Government's activities, and whether or 
not the records have historical or other value. Public review and 
comment on these records schedules is part of the Archivist's 
consideration process.
