DOE ORO EM Facility Representative Contract Project Description
Contract Number: Subcontract to EIRC DE-AT05-02OR22893
Contract Type:
Contract Dollar Value:
Period of Performance: January 2002 to present


SLIND provides the necessary and just-in-time professional support to the DOE Oak Ridge Operations (ORO) EM Facility Representative (FacRep) Training and Qualification Program. The FacRep organization provides the primary means of oversight for all EM Decontamination and Decommissioning (D&D) programs, Complex Processes, and Operating Facilities on the Reservation. In keeping with specific DOE Orders, Manuals, and Standards, as well as ORO Directives, EM procedures and Defense Nuclear Facility Safety Board recommendations, these essential oversight personnel must maintain a qualification and training process and management program conducive to safe and reliable oversight of a dynamic EM operation.

Each of the SLIND professionals provided in support of this mission are Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) for their discipline and maintain the technical and interpersonal skills necessary to support the dynamic and high risk activities related to oversight of the Bechtel Jacobs Company, LLC. (BJC) closure of the Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR) legacy facilities.

Specific to the ORO EM FacRep support efforts, SLIND has developed study guides and lesson plans, conducted mentoring sessions and prepared qualification packages. Disciplines supported under this contract include:


  • Conduct of Operations (ConOps)
  • Integrated Safety Management (ISM)
  • Nuclear Safety
  • Occurrence Reporting
  • D&D
  • Environmental Restoration
  • Waste Management/Disposition
  • Logistics (Transportation)
  • Worker and Public Safety and Health
  • Environmental Protection
  • DOE Directives and Standards

In support of this Project and others, SLIND has developed and utilizes a Requirements Extraction software application. In summary, the requirements extraction process is very similar to the Standards/Requirements Information Documents process, but completely automated. This automated process allows SLIND to take a requirement [Code of Federal Regulation (CFR), DOE Order, DOE Manual, DOE Standard, State Regulation, Documented Safety Analysis, Technical Safety Requirement, Plan/procedure, American National Standards Institute (ANSI), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) or National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) Standard] and quickly identify all

the required action statements. This is accomplished by breaking the document down using a complex Macro utilizing over twenty key words to extract those actions that display a Shall, Will, Should, May or Implied Action(s).

This process is then supplemented through the use of an off-the-shelf relational database to compile, sort, and segregate these requirements’ statements into informative reports. These reports then identify the basis of a requirement, the procedure (administrative control) that implements the requirement, responsibility for implementation by position, and relation of the requirement to other documents. In short, as depicted in Figure 3, SLIND Requirements Extraction Process, this process defines a complete configuration management process for a Project’s administrative control process.

Uranium Disposition Services Project Description
Contract Number: BOA-FS-OR-2002-036
Contract Type:
Contract Dollar Value:
Period of Performance: October 2002 through 2004


As a lower-tier subcontractor, SLIND has been affiliated with Uranium Disposition Services (UDS) since they were awarded their contract by DOE. The Task Orders (TO) issued SLIND increased steadily due to the quality, consistency, expedience, cost-effectiveness, and attentiveness that we have placed on every TO awarded.

The primary objectives of the UDS depleted uranium hexafluoride (DUF6)) Conversion Project are to design, construct, and operate conversion facilities on DOE property at the Portsmouth and Paducah sites. These facilities will convert the DOE inventory of DUF6, now located at the Paducah and Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plants and at East Tennessee Technology Park (ETTP), to a stable chemical form acceptable for beneficial use/reuse and/or disposal. In addition, UDS will provide surveillance and maintenance of the DOE inventory of cylinders containing DUF6, low-enriched uranium hexafluoride, and natural assay uranium hexafluoride.

SLIND provided the necessary technical professional start-up support to the UDS DUF6 Project. The professionals provided required no coaching. Upon assignment each began definition of Project level planning documents.

SLIND maintained accountability for every task awarded. The following are examples of the services and activities SLIND provided to UDS:

  • Integrated Safety Management Systems (ISMS) & Work Smart Standards (WSSs)
    • Developed Project Specific ISMS Plan
    • Developed associated procedures and subcontracting strategy
    • Developed associated training materials
    • Support Phase 1 and 2 Verification
  • Security
  • Training
    • Develop the project’s initial training and qualification of technical and operating personnel
    • Developed the initial Training Plan
  • Records Management
    • Developed the project’s written record management program Staffed and maintained an auditable records management program
  • WSSs
    • Served as the WSSs Process Leader in support of both DOE and the Prime
    • Coordinated activities of the WSS Identification Team
    • Reported to the Confirmation Team and prepare WSS Final Report
    • Developed associated procedures/protocols
  • Quality Assurance (QA
    • Supported the development and DOE approval of QA Plans and Procedures
    • Coordinated the implementation of QA implementing procedures
    • Evaluated the effectiveness of implementation for QA procedures and plans
    • Developed and implemented the assessment plan and schedule
    • Determine construction and operation staffing levels for Quality Functions
    • Provide QA oversight for Engineering, Procurement, and Construction activities
  • Development of procedures, plans, and other guidance documents associated with the above referenced programs

As defined in Figure 4, our established start-up process were instrumental in carrying the project effectively and efficiently through the first 2 phases of the 3 phases of Design, Construction and Operation. The primary focus of this process is to staff the project with personnel that can immediately develop and obtain DOE approval of all necessary Administrative Controls. Additionally, SLIND focus on combining efforts such as procedure development and training to maximize efficiency in program development.
