Due to the risk of incorrectly dispositioning nuclear outage materials, we initiated an evaluation of nuclear outage material management. Our objective was to determine if TVA is managing designated outage material following an outage to maximize use and minimize cost. We determined TVA generally managed designated outage materials to maximize use and minimize cost. Specifically, we found (1) no instances where TVA missed material redeployment opportunities for designated outage materials and (2) all outage items designated for surplus and subsequently repurchased were warranted. However, we identified opportunities for improvement related to documentation for material returns and a TVA inventory database control.
