Memorandum to the Chairman

We are pleased to submit to you the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC's)Office of the Inspector General (OIG) Semiannual Report to Congress for the period October 1, 1995, to March 31, 1996.

During this reporting period, we completed 8 audits of NRC's programs and operations and analyzed 13 contract audits as issued by the Defense Contract Audit Agency. The contract audit work resulted in questioning $87,973 in costs. As a result of our internal audit work, we made 8 recommendations to NRC management. We also completed 63 investigations and 2 event inquiries. Much of our investigative work involved issues concerning the NRC's regulation of Northeast Utilities Millstone Unit 1 Nuclear Power Station.

We are committed to preventing fraud, waste, and abuse and to improving the economy and efficiency of NRC's programs and operations. We value the open lines of communications the OIG has with agency managers, which contributes to OIG products continuing to be useful and meaningful.

Sincerely,

Hubert T. Bell
Inspector General
