      Private companies have also started to recycle helium-3 from decommissioned radiation detection portal monitors. While the IP has the mission to produce and distribute isotopes that are not commercially available and can distribute legacy materials as a service to the Department, it does not have the mission to be the steward of stockpiles of legacy materials and their byproducts. Further legislation in by the 71st Legislature, Senate Billauthorized the Commission to participate in the financing, development, and operation of the Superconducting Super Collider. Its role in computer network exploitation - of gathering electronic "data at rest" is a natural extension of its signals intelligence role of gathering "data in motion. The objective of the exercise was to practice defending against a cyber attack that would be on the same scale as the September 11,events, and would target both governmental and private sectors.

      Additional cyber attacks on Lithuanian and Kyrgzstan targets took place in June and Januaryrespectively. The Isotope Program and NNSA determined the quantity and minimum price of helium-3 for each auction; the price was set to recover the costs to extract helium-3 and the administrative costs of selling it. Source: GAO analysis of information from the interagency policy committee and Linde. BER initiated the Human Genome Project in and has continued to support activity in genomics -based systems biology and initiatives related to biotechnology applications.

      DOE estimates that public reporting burden for the certification averages 30 hours per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. Such forecasting is important in order to align demand with current inventory levels. Without stewardship responsibility, key risks to managing helium-3, such as the lack of understanding of the helium-3 inventory and the demand for helium-3, were not identified or mitigated by either entity. Then, in earlyalong with PPD and the related executive order, the administration released Administration Strategy on Mitigating the Theft of U. Legal issues have also been examined by the Congressional Research Service.

February A key risk to managing the sale of all these isotopes is the lack of control over, and knowledge of, their supply.

The SSC was a super collider high-energy research facility sponsored and authorized by the United States government as part of the U.

This included providing a secondary emergency exit for a building with occupants on multiple floor levels. Another examines the threat from specific collectors, including Russia, China, and U.

In this regard, the actions taken should be consistent with the forecasting recommendation from the subcommittee report of the Nuclear Science Advisory Committee.

Report on Securing and Growing the Digital Economy. Cyber Threat Partnership Final Report. DOE received comments on the proposed rule from efficiency advocates, manufacturers, trade associations, utilities, a third-party test laboratory, and a government agency.

After the site was selected, the Commission began considering other issues, such as land acquisition, site development, environmental impact, changes to the infrastructure in the region and other facets involved in the development and eventual operation of the SSC Lab, research and development projects, and administration of the commission.

In radiation detection portal monitors, long, thin metal tubes are filled GAO report on the Department of Energy national laboratory management book helium-3; neutrons passing through these tubes react with the helium-3, creating charged particles that are detected by the monitors.

Recommendation for Executive Action Status: Closed - Implemented Comments: DOE created the Laboratory Operations Board in April to provide leadership and management direction for the national labs the Board is comprised of internal and external experts ; developed mission plans for some of its laboratories, and is using technology roadmaps to provide mini-strategic plans for specific program areas, as a GAO report on the Department of Energy national laboratory management book to focus lab missions and improve their management.

The director stated that it is the responsibility of the Isotope Program, however, to manage the activities under its control for these isotopes, such as selling them outside DOE and NNSA and conducting 5-year supply and demand forecasts.

The hackers, ultimately discovered to be two California high school students, also mounted at least a second intrusion to extract data from the penetrated computers. March 16, The Commission was composed of nine members, appointed by the Governor with consent of the Senate for overlapping six-year terms.

Baker, and William R. Strategic Command to establish a U. For example, the government is conducting research to develop alternatives for neutron detection applications, including radiation detection portal monitors and nuclear physics research, which together use more helium-3 than any other application.

Quadrennial Technology Review July 15, The collection-of-information requirement for the certification and recordkeeping is subject to review and approval by the Office of Management and Budget OMB under the Act. This text file was formatted by the U. Li-6 supply. Also, as a nontoxic gas that is not absorbed by the human body, helium-3 is used in magnetic resonance imaging MRI to research pulmonary disorders, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

December 19, In this regard, the subcommittee report of the Nuclear Science Advisory Committee stated that for the Isotope Program to be efficient and effective, it needs accurate forecasts for the demand for isotopes.

Under the federal standards for internal control, federal managers are to assess the risks faced entity-wide, and at the activity level, from external and internal sources and decide what actions to take to mitigate such risks. January Some GAO evaluations have focused on cybersecurity issues with respect to single components of critical U.
