Subject: Observations on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Fiscal Year
1999 Performance Report and Fiscal Year 2001 Performance Plan
As you requested, we have reviewed the 24 Chief Financial Officers Act agencies'
fiscal year 1999 performance reports and fiscal year 2001 performance plans required
by the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993. In essence, under
GPRA, annual performance plans are to establish performance goals and measures
covering a given fiscal year and provide the direct linkage between an agency's
longer-term goals and day-to-day activities. Annual performance reports are to
subsequently provide information on the degree to which those performance goals
were met. This report contains two enclosures responding to your request
concerning key program outcomes and major management challenges at the Nuclear
Regulatory Commission (NRC). Enclosure I provides our observations on NRC's
fiscal year 1999 actual and fiscal year 2001 planned performance for the key
outcomes that you identified as important mission areas for the agency. These key

* no radiation-related deaths or illnesses due to the civilian use of nuclear materials;
* wastes produced by the civilian use of nuclear materials are treated, stored, and
disposed of safely; and
* no loss or theft of special nuclear materials regulated by NRC.
Enclosure II lists the 13 major management challenges facing the agency that we and
NRC's Office of the Inspector General (OIG) identified, how NRC's fiscal year 1999
performance report discussed the progress the agency has made in resolving these
challenges and the applicable goals and measures in the fiscal year 2001 performance
