IG gigs Pantex on infrastructure report

The Department of Energy’s Office of Inspector General took a look at the management of the infrastructure at the Pantex nuclear weapons plant, and found some problems.

Here’s an excerpt from the summary:

“. . . We determined that the majority of the requested maintenance tasks at Pantex, although captured in the maintenance system, were not reported to NNSA management via performance metric reporting.  In the absence of complete backlog information, NNSA management does not have a true indicator of the site infrastructure’s overall condition.”
