Part of: Transition in the Nuclear Industry


The Nuclear Industry, particularly utilities and their constructor, engineering and vendor agents, is faced with a surging increase in Prudency Management Audits. Such Audits are often a precedent condition to commencement of rate hearings. The Engineer, as a prime nuclear participant, is called upon to demonstrate that the performance of the utility's team was a 'prudent' expenditure of funds, and thus recoverable through increased rates. All aspects of the design, procurement and construction process are being analyzed.
