Memorandum to the Chairman

Enclosed is the Office of Inspector General's Semiannual Report to Congress for the six-month period beginning April 1, 1996 and ending September 30, 1996.

During this reporting period, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) completed 8 audits of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC's) programs and operations and analyzed 27 contract audit reports as issued by the Defense Contract Audit Agency. The contract audit work resulted in questioning $170,914 in costs and identifying $214,598 of funds that could be put to better use. As a result of the audits performed on NRC's programs, OIG made 17 recommendations to agency managers. OIG also completed 42 investigations and 5 event inquiries.

The continued cooperation of NRC managers and staff was a significant factor in allowing us to successfully complete our work. The agency provided valuable insights into program operations and decision-making while providing unrestricted access to agency records. This allowed our staff to focus on problematic areas and to recommend reasonable corrective actions. We look forward to our continued work together as we strive for excellence in NRC's programs and operations.


Hubert T. Bell
Inspector General
