Memorandum to the Chairman

I am pleased to submit the Office of Inspector General's (OIG's) Semiannual Report to the U.S. Congress, which covers significant OIG activities during the period of April 1, 1997, through September 30, 1997. This report complies with Section 5 of the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended.

During this reporting period, our office completed five performance and financial audits, and two special evaluations addressing the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC's) programs. We also analyzed 21 contract audit reports issued by the Defense Contract Audit Agency. The contract audit work resulted in questioning $131,329 in costs and identifying an additional $32,513 as funds that could be put to better use. As a result of the audit work, we made 11 recommendations and suggestions to NRC management. During this period, 30 investigations and 4 event inquiries were completed.

In carrying out the OIG's oversight responsibilities, we appreciate the cooperation and consideration extended by you and NRC management at all levels. We look forward to continuing our work with you and the entire NRC staff as we address the opportunities and challenges facing the Agency.


Hubert T. Bell
Inspector General
