Due to the importance of maintaining equipment in good operating condition and concerns raised during past Office of the Inspector General reviews, we conducted an evaluation to determine if (1) Coal Operations fully implemented the work management process improvements recommended by Reliability Management Group (RMG) and (2) performance metrics indicated the changes had improved work management. We were unable to determine if Coal Operations fully implemented work management process improvements recommended by RMG because there were no formal recommendations made for coal plants. While RMG did not provide recommendations to TVA for coal plants, we reviewed work management metrics and determined that one metric improved while RMG was onsite while others had mixed results. However, performance declined in the 6 months after RMG left at several sites.
