Program Evaluation Reports (PERs) and Program Evaluation Plans (PEPs)

NIOSH is committed to applying the best available science in dose reconstructions. In keeping with this commitment, completed cases with probabilities of causation less than 50% are reviewed as relevant new information becomes available. The results of these reviews are described in a Program Evaluation Report (PER). The PER details the effect, if any, of the new information on the completed dose reconstruction. If it appears that the new information may result in an increase in dose for a completed dose reconstruction with a probability of causation of less than 50%, NIOSH is committed to working with the Department of Labor to reopen and rework the dose reconstruction, as appropriate. A Program Evaluation Plan (PEP) describes plans for evaluating specific program details or issues.

At the current time, no PERs or PEPs specific to Mound Plant have been developed. However, we have developed PERs and PEPs that pertain to multiple sites. To view all PERs and PEPs that have been developed, please refer to the Program Evaluation Reports (PERs) and Program Evaluation Plans (PEPs) page.

Worker Outreach Activities

Based on a recommendation from the Advisory Board to provide workers and site experts with opportunities to participate in developing the technical documents used in dose reconstruction, NIOSH established a Worker Outreach Program.

At Worker Outreach Meetings, current and former DOE and AWE employees have opportunities to obtain information about Site Profiles, Technical Basis Documents, and Technical Information Bulletins, and to provide information for consideration and possible use in dose reconstruction. This process is valuable to ensure that the technical documents used in dose reconstruction contain correct and useful information.

Below are the Worker Outreach Activities for the Mound Plant:

Advisory Board Work Group on the Mound Plant

This Work Group is responsible for reviewing the SEC petition from the Mound petitioners, reviewing the NIOSH Evaluation Report of the petition, considering issues raised by the Board's contractor (SC&A), and for assisting NIOSH and SC&A in the resolution of such issues. The Work Group must independently evaluate the integrity and completeness of the data upon which dose reconstructions are based. The Work Group will consider the assumptions and judgments of historical facts provided in the Evaluation Report and develop appropriate recommendations for the Board's consideration. The Work Group will also consider any reviews provided by SC&A regarding the petition, and will use a deliberative process to narrow the scope of the SEC important issues and questions. The Work Group should strive to develop a recommendation to the Board on whether a class should be added to the SEC.
