TO:       ALL NRC Employees

SUBJECT:  REORGANIZATION OF THE OFFICE OF NUCLEAR REACTOR REGULATION (NRR)


Effective October 2, 1994, the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation will be
reorganized to implement the goals of the Federal Workforce Restructuring Act of
1994.  To promote operational efficiency and in keeping with the goal to reduce
the ratio of management to staff, the functions of several NRR divisions and
branches have been realigned and combined: 

     Among the changes in NRR's Associate Directorate for Projects are the
      establishment of the Cost Beneficial Licensing Action Staff; the
      elimination of Assistant Director positions in the Reactor Project
      Divisions; a reduction to two Project Directorates for Region IV following
      the earlier assimilation of Region V Project Directorates; and the
      combination of the Events Assessment and Generic Communications Branches
      in the new Division of Project Support, formerly the Division of Operating
      Reactor Support.

     Changes in the new Associate Directorate for Technical Assessment include
      the establishment of the Division of Technical Support, incorporating the
      personnel and functions of the former Division of Radiation Safety and
      Safeguards and the Division of Reactor Inspection and Licensee
      Performance; and the combination of the Emergency Preparedness and
      Radiation Protection Branches and the Special Inspection and Vendor
      Inspection Branches in the Division of Technical Support.  

     The Program Management, Policy Development and Analysis Staff will be
      renamed the Directorate for Inspection and Support Programs.

An organization chart detailing the new structure of the Office of Nuclear
Reactor Regulation is shown on the reverse side of this announcement.
