B
EIR Documents Reviewed by the Committee

The committee, with input from the Office of Engineering and Construction Management, identified a representative sample of DOE projects and EIR documents. The sample includes projects from the three DOE program offices that are responsible for the majority of construction projects and a representative distribution of project size, complexity, and performance. The sample includes reports from all three EIR contractors employed by DOE prior to 2006. OECM and the project management support offices provided the committee all available data for each project. Variations in the data from project to project are due to changes in policies and procedures over time, the approach of individual contractors and PSOs, and the characteristics of the project. The committee conducted teleconferences with federal project directors of selected projects, who are listed below.
