INTERIM
REPORT

The purpose of this letter is to provide an interim report to NRC
in
accordance with the requirements of 10 CFR 50.55 (e)(1)(i).

On February 3, 1995, Problem Evaluation Report (PER) WBPER950078
was
initiated to document an apparent failure to follow the
requirements of
Site Standard Practice (SSP) 3.04, "Corrective Action Program."
The
problem identified in the PER was that some contractor
individuals may
not have been documenting conditions adverse to quality through
any of
the WBN Administrative Control Programs identified in SSP-3.04.

10 CFR 50.55(e)(1)(i) requires that deficiencies must be
evaluated for
reportability within 60 days of discovery.  Additional time is
required
to determine whether the undocumented deficiencies in WBPER950078
could
have created a substantial safety hazard, if left uncorrected. 
This
action will be completed by June 3, 1995.

The Enclosure identifies the commitment made in this submittal.
