We evaluated TVA’s Corrective Action Program (CAP) to determine if the CAP was effective in resolving anonymous condition reports (CRs) at Watts Bar Nuclear Plant. We determined TVA took actions to address the anonymous CAP CRs in a timely manner. Specifically, we found for 22 of the 25 CAP CRs tested, the actions were completed within a reasonable time frame. The remaining 3 CAP CRs were appropriately closed to another CR that was previously initiated for the same concern and is scheduled for completion in May 2018. However, we identified an opportunity for improvement related to (1) routing of handwritten, anonymous CRs and (2) documenting that CRs are routed to the appropriate personnel.
