A broad spectrum of public and private sector institutions in the United States has concerns about the high-level radioactive waste management program. An integrated systems approach is essential to ensure that there are opportunities for meaningful and timely participation by institutions concerned about the effects of the technical activities in the storage, transportation, and disposal of high-level radioactive waste. To obtain predecisional input from these institutions, it is necessary to systematically identify the individual institutions with concerns about specific technical activities and then plan for effective working relations with them to resolve issues, and thereby build consensus and public confidence.
