Abstract : General Accounting Office (GAO) reviewed the Department of Energy's (DOE) progress in developing a new nuclear materials tracking system. This new system is intended to replace the existing Nuclear Materials Management and Safeguards System (NMMSS), which is the United States' official system for tracking U.S. imports and exports of nuclear materials. In December 1994, GAO reported on DOE's planning for the replacement NMMSS. This report discusses (1) what actions DOE has taken to implement the recommendations in our previous report and (2) whether DOE is adequately addressing key system development risks.
