The Department of Energy’s Office of Inspector General released a report November 15 that concluded that the agency needs to focus on how budget cuts may impact the national laboratories as well as the need to safely store nuclear waste now that the Yucca Mountain project has been cancelled. The Special Report: Management Challenges at the Department of Energy: Fiscal Year 2012 identified other management challenges, including contract and financial assistance award management, cybersecurity, energy supply, environmental cleanup, human capital management, and stewardship of the country’s nuclear weapons stockpile, and added the loan guarantee program to its watch list.
