Memorandum to the Chairman

Enclosed is the Office of the Inspector General's Semiannual Report to Congress for the six-month period beginning October 1, 1996, and ending March 31, 1997.

During this reporting period, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) completed eight audits or special evaluations of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC's) programs and operations, and analyzed 25 contract audit reports issued by the Defense Contract Audit Agency. The contract audit work resulted in questioning $50,737 in costs and identifying $8,620 of funds that could be put to better use. As a result of the audits performed on NRC programs, the OIG made 17 recommendations or suggestions to agency managers. The OIG also completed 39 investigations and one event inquiry.

The OIG continues to have a supportive and cooperative relationship with NRC managers and staff, which facilitates our ability to successfully complete our mission. We look forward to continuing our work together in achieving the highest level of integrity and accountability for NRC programs and operations.


Hubert T. Bell
Inspector General
