Title: Technical Assistance Request, Statements of Intent
by Government "Controlled" Entities
See the memorandum from J. E. Glenn to R. R. Bellamy dated
February 27, 1991. This NMSS memo responds to a technical
assistance request (TAR) from Region I for guidance on how
to determine whether a university or hospital may use a
statement of intent to fulfill its financial assurance
requirement as specified in 10 CFR 30.35, 10 CFR 40.36, and
10 CFR 70.25. HPPOS-269 contains a related topic.

Management and Decommissioning who provided the following
1. If an institution is identified as a "public
institution" in either the "Directory of Post Secondary
Institutions" or the "American Hospital Association Guide
to the Health Care Field," then that institution is assumed
to be controlled by a government agency.
2. The government agency may provide all or part of
the financial assurance.
3. If the government agency uses a statement of intent
to provide all or part of the financial assurance, the
statement must be signed by a person authorized to make the
4. If the government agency provides only part of the
required assurance, the remainder of the required assurance
must be covered by an acceptable mechanism.
