Description

Contained in the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 1988-89 (H.R. 1748, Section 3133), is a requirement for the President to conduct a study on the nuclear weapons complex for the purpose of determining the overall size and productive capacity necessary to meet national security objectives. Based on the study, the President is directed to formulate a plan to modernize the nuclear weapons complex including actions necessary to ensure operation of facilities in a safe and environmentally acceptable manner; a schedule for implementation of the plan; and the estimated costs of implementation of the plan. The Act calls for submission of a Report to the appropriate committees of the Congress including recommendations resulting from the Study and a description of the Plan. The report is to be submitted by February 15, 1988. In contrast to the Bill, the Committee report on H.R. 1748, Section 3133, calls for both a Study and a Plan to be submitted one year later than the aforementioned report, and puts much greater stress on recommendations concerning the capability of the weapons complex to be operated in a safe and environmentally acceptable manner. Thus, the Report will be submitted by President Reagan and the Study and Plan will be submitted by a new president. This report discusses the implications of this schedule, suggests a plan of action for DOE, and summarizes possible deliverables: Predictable planning baseline; Environment, safety and health; Special nuclear material availability; Non-defense programs work; Content versus pace; Testing; Weapons research, development and testing versus production and stockpile integrity versus new builds; Integration with DOD programming cycle; Duality in research and development; and Program packaging.
