The Office of the Inspector General conducted a review of the Hydro Generation, Central Region (Hydro Central) to identify strengths and risks that could impact Hydro Central’s organizational effectiveness. Our report identified strengths that positively affected the day-to-day activities of Hydro Central personnel. These strengths included (1) organizational alignment, (2) positive interactions within and outside of Hydro Central, (3) effective leadership, and (4) positive ethical culture. However, we also identified risks that could hinder Hydro Central’s effective execution and its continued ability to meet its responsibilities in support of the Power Operations mission. These were comprised of risks related to (1) employee behaviors inconsistent with TVA values in two plant groups, (2) safety concerns due to asset and equipment conditions, and (3) workforce training and staffing.
