Subject:  OPERATOR LICENSING EXAMINATIONS (Generic Letter 86-14) 

To update the schedules you provided in response to Generic Letter 85-18, 
please provide the best estimate of your needs for operator licensing 
examinations for FY 1987, FY 1988, FY 1989, and FY 1990 (October 1 to 
September 30 of each year). In addition, please identify the dates for your 
scheduled requalification examinations and anticipated number of 
examinations and dates for each licensing examination site visit. This 
information is needed to plan our resource requirements consistent with your 
operator licensing needs. 

Because of continued budget limitations, we will attempt to limit 
examinations to two visits per site each year. To meet this goal the 
regional offices may be required to redistribute the requested facility 
operator examination visits across the entire fiscal year to even out the 
examination workload and eliminate high demand periods. Therefore, your 
submittal of this schedule does not guarantee the number or date of 
examinations requested. However, a best estimate of your needs for 
examinations will allow us to propose budget modifications, if necessary. 
Please keep us informed of significant changes in your estimates as they 
occur, so we can keep our data base current. 

Your schedules, in the enclosed suggested formats, should be returned to Mr.
Bruce Boger, Chief, Operator Licensing Branch, AR-5221, Washington, DC 
20555, with a courtesy copy to the appropriate Regional Administrator by 
October 1, 1986. We appreciate your assistance. If you have any questions 
concerning this request or your response, please call Mr. Boger at (301) 
492-4868.
