The Office of the Inspector General conducted a review of the Sequoyah Nuclear Plant Chemistry/Environmental (SQN Chemistry) organization to identify factors that could impact SQN Chemistry’s organizational effectiveness. During the course of our evaluation, we identified behaviors that had a positive impact on SQN Chemistry. These included relationships with most management. However, we also identified behavioral risks related to accountability, relationships within and outside Chemistry, low morale, and ethics. In addition, we identified risks to operations that have hindered SQN Chemistry’s effectiveness. These risks were related to the physical work environment, monitoring effluents and collecting required samples, and inaccurate sample documentation.
