Processing of Nuclear Materials
Question: Within processing of Nuclear Materials, provide the FY 1985, FY 1986, and FY 1987 budgets for Savannah River, Richland, Idaho Falls, Oak Ridge, Los Alamos, Livermore, and Santa Susana. Please provide a breakdown of the activities at each location and justify the change from FY 1986 to FY 1987.
Answer: The processing account increases by 7.5 percent from FY 1986 to FY 1987. Of the increase, 5 percent is for inflation. The remaining 2.5 percent in growth is for the increased throughput required at these processing facilities. A breakdown of processing funding and of quantities to be processed for the period requested 18 as follows:
Total Nuclear Materials Recovered*
Kilograms Highly Enriched Uranium
* Some material is processed twice during any one year, e.8., PUREX
fuel grade plutonium oxide is processed at Richland and blended at Savannah River.
Nuclear Materials Production Analysis of Processing Account (Budget/Authority in Millions)
1985 1986 1987
* Funding provided in Support Services in FY 1986.
Question: Within supporting services, provide the FY 1985, FY 1986, and FY 1987 budgets for each location. Please provide a breakdown of the activities at each location and justify the change from FY 1986 to FY 1987.
Answer: Supporting services is an integral portion of our budget and contains activities essential to maintain production operations for a program as large as the Nuclear Materials Production program. If you take into consideration escalation at 5 percent, our supporting services program growth actually decreases by approximately $10 million. A breakdown of supporting services funding and a listing of essential activities by location for the years requested follows:
