Through September 30, 1992, the Nuclear Waste Fund had received $5.8 billion in fee payments, earned $1.5 billion in interest, and disbursed $3.4 billion. The book value of investments as of this date was $3.7 billion. To manage a fund of these proportions, the DOE's Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management has established a series of fund management processes, each of which provides a significant amount of quantitative information which is used in fund management decision-making. This paper describes these processes and how they are integrated to support decision-making.
