The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the agency) is an independent agency established by the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, which began operations in 1975 as a successor to the Atomic Energy Commission. The NRC is required by the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2018 to develop an annual evaluation plan. The Annual Evaluation Plan provides summary information on evaluations being initiated in fiscal year 2023. The Evidence Act defines an evaluation as an assessment using systematic data collection and analysis of one or more programs, policies, and organizations intended to assess their effectiveness and efficiency. The evaluations being conducted will assist in answering priority questions established in the Evidence-Building Plan or other evaluations determined to be significant, such as those required by statute or those of high value to the agency. This evaluation plan contains two evaluations to be initiated in FY 2023.
