    Weapons activities.--This program includes the following activities:
        Stockpile Stewardship.--This activity provides for the research, 
    development, and engineering activities to support the safety and 
    reliability of the nuclear weapons stockpile, without underground 
    nuclear testing, through a science-based Stockpile Stewardship 
    program. The core stewardship program supports Stockpile Stewardship 
    by maintaining core competencies at the weapons laboratories and the 
    Nevada Test Site, and through research on enhanced safety and 
    reliability of the enduring stockpile and dismantlement techniques. 
    In addition, the core stewardship program maintains the capability 
    to execute an underground nuclear test if directed by the President. 
    Research and development on inertial confinement fusion is also 
    included and the transfer of nonsensitive Defense Programs' funded 
    technology to the private sector is promoted.
        Stockpile Management.--This activity provides for the 
    maintenance of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile, capabilities to 
    modify or produce new weapons if required, lifetime surveillance of 
    the stockpile, and retirement and disposal of weapons and weapon 
    components. The Stockpile Management program also supports 
    activities that include maintenance of technical and operational 
    capabilities for responding to nuclear/radiological accidents and 
    incidents worldwide. This program also provides for nuclear 
    materials surveillance for storage, handling, shipping, 
    safeguarding, control and accountability, and disposition for 
    defense programs nuclear materials located at Defense Programs' 
    facilities.
        Within the Stockpile Management Program, the Department has been 
    pursuing a dual track strategy to produce tritium for the Nation's 
    enduring nuclear weapons stockpile. It plans to select a primary and 
    backup option in 1998. The budget includes $157 million to pursue 
    the option that is selected. If the Department selects the purchase 
    of irradiation services from commercial light water reactors as the 
    primary option, it will be able to meet current requirements within 
    the funds available. If the Department selects accelerator 
    production of tritium as the primary option, it will need to seek 
    relief from the current target date for initiating new tritium 
    production or seek additional funding.

        Weapons Program Direction.--This activity provides personnel and 
    contractual services for the Federal management, direction, and the 
    administration of selected Defense Programs' missions.

    Environmental Management.--The Office of Environmental Management 
(EM) manages the thousands of contaminated areas and buildings, huge 
waste volumes, and nuclear materials left over from the nuclear weapons 
production process. In June 1996, EM began working toward a long-range 
goal of completing cleanup at most sites within a decade. FY 1999 
represents the first fiscal year in which the budget structure is based 
on projects. This budget structure differentiates by completion dates 
and end states rather than by activities performed.

    The FY 1999 budget request will support the following major program 
areas:
        Site/Project Completion.--Includes sites and/or projects that 
    will be completed by 2006 at EM laboratories or other facilities 
    where DOE will continue to have a presence beyond the year 2006. 
    Examples of sites with projects included in this account are Idaho 
    National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory, Idaho; Hanford, 
    Washington; and Savannah River, South Carolina.
        Post 2006 Completion.--Includes projects that will continue 
    after 2006. Included are various projects at Hanford, Washington; 
    Savannah River, South Carolina; Idaho National Engineering and 
    Environmental Laboratory, Idaho;

[[Page 361]]

    Nevada Test Site, Nevada; Oak Ridge Reservation, Tennessee; and the 
    Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (Carlsbad), New Mexico.
        Office of Science and Technology.--Conducts technology 
    development activities which focus on the Department's major 
    environmental management issues to reduce risk to workers, the 
    public, and the environment, reduce cleanup costs; and/or provide 
    solutions that do not exist to current problems shared by multiple 
    sites. Includes the Environmental Science program which conducts a 
    targeted long-term basic research program for Environmental 
    Management problems to significantly reduce long-term cleanup costs 
    and risks to workers and the public; ``bridging the gap'' between 
    broad fundamental research such as that performed in DOE's Office of 
    Energy Research, and applied technology development which has been 
    historically supported by Environmental Management. In addition, the 
    Office is responsible for developing risk policy, requirements and 
    guidance to ensure that risk analysis theory and processes are 
    integrated into coherent decision making processes.
        EM Program Direction.--Provides salaries and benefits, travel 
    and other contractual support costs for the Federal workforce at 
    Headquarters and in the field which support the Environmental 
    Management Program.
        Activities performed include: environmental restoration, which 
    provides for assessments, characterization, remediation, and 
    decontamination and decommissioning of contaminated DOE facilities 
    and sites; waste management, which provides for the safe, treatment, 
    storage, and disposal of wastes generated by defense activities; 
    and, nuclear material and facility stabilization, which provides for 
    stabilization, safeguarding, interim storage, and stewardship of 
    excess nuclear materials, including spent nuclear fuel, awaiting 
    ultimate disposition.
        EM will continue to improve the efficiency of its programs 
    through a variety of management and contracting strategies. In 
    addition to privatization efforts, emphasis will continue on the 
    reduction of support costs and implementation of performance-based 
    contracts.
        Asset Management Pilot Projects.--The Asset Management Program 
    is designed to provide a financial return to the Federal government 
    by disposing of unneeded assets. Six pilot projects have been 
    identified for asset disposition. Revenues received in excess of the 
    cost of sales, leases, and disposition are returned to Treasury.

surveillance and maintenance (i.e., pump and treat). Examples of sites 
included under this account are Fernald, Ohio and Rocky Flats, Colorado.

    Activities performed include: environmental restoration, which 
provides for assessments, characterization, remediation, and 
decontamination and decommissioning of contaminated DOE facilities and 
sites; waste management, which provides for the safe, treatment, 
storage, and disposal of wastes generated by defense activities; and,

        Environmental Management Privatization.--Provides funding 
    necessary to proceed with privatization of various DOE environmental 
    management projects that will treat some of DOE's most contaminated 
    soil and highly radioactive waste, as well as deactivate 
    contaminated nuclear facilities that cost excessive amounts of money 
    to maintain. This new approach to cleanup relies on the private 
    sector to construct and operate facilities or proceed with cleanup 
    actions on a fixed-price, fee-for-service basis. These competitively 
    awarded projects are expected to save approximately 30 percent or 
    more over the life-cycle of the projects, when compared to DOE's 
    traditional approach of designing, constructing and operating a 
    government-owned facility. Funds in this account will allow DOE to 
    enter into these contracts and assures private investors that funds 
    will be available to pay for services once the facilities are built.

    following areas: Nonproliferation and Verification, Research and 
    Development, Arms Control and Nonproliferation, Intelligence, 
    Nuclear Safeguards and Security, Security Investigations, Emergency 
    Management and Program Direction. These activities provide policy, 
    direction, technology development and implementation, and leadership 
    in national and international efforts to reduce the danger to U.S. 
    national security posed by weapons of mass destruction. Key mission 
    areas are: (1) preventing the spread of weapons of mass destruction 
    materials, technology, and expertise; (2) detecting the 
    proliferation of weapons of mass destruction world wide; (3) 
    reversing the proliferation of nuclear weapons capabilities; and (4) 
    responding to weapons of mass destruction emergencies.
        Fissile Materials Disposition.--The Fissile Materials 
    Disposition Program is responsible for defining and implement

[[Page 363]]

    ing a path forward for the verifiable storage and disposition of 
    U.S. weapons-usable fissile material (highly enriched uranium and 
    plutonium) and for providing technical support for efforts to attain 
    reciprocal actions for the disposition of surplus Russian plutonium. 
    The Department is preparing to dispose of surplus weapons highly 
    enriched uranium by blending it down to low enriched uranium for use 
    as commercial reactor fuel. The Department is pursuing a hybrid 
    plutonium disposition strategy that allows for immobilization of 
    surplus plutonium with ceramic material surrounded by vitrified high 
    level waste, and burning of surplus plutonium as mixed oxide (MOX) 
    fuel in existing domestic commercial reactors. Over the next two 
    years, DOE will complete site-specific environmental reviews and 
    detailed cost proposals for both disposition approaches; make a 
    Record of Decision on site(s) for disposition facilities; begin 
    detailed design of two of the three disposition facilities; and 
    complete tests, process development and technology demonstrations 
    required for plutonium disposition. Near term efforts also involve 
    continued efforts to consolidate the storage of weapons-usable 
    fissile materials, pending disposition; and development of a pilot 
    scale plutonium conversion system in Russia. The budget includes $28 
    million to begin design of a MOX fuel fabrication facility in the 
    United States. The Administration will not construct new facilities 
    for disposition of U.S. plutonium unless there is significant 
    progress on plans for plutonium disposition in Russia.
        Worker and Community Transition.--This program provides for the 
    development and implementation of plans under section 3161 of the 
    National Defense Authorization Act of 1993, to provide options to 
    assist workers affected by workforce restructuring including 
    preference in hiring, outplacement assistance, relocation 
    assistance, and incentives for early retirement or separation. This 
    program also provides impact assistance to local communities, as 
    well as disposition of assets excess to current Department needs.
        Naval Reactors.--This program performs the design, development, 
    and testing necessary to provide the Navy with safe, militarily 
    effective nuclear propulsion plants in keeping with the Nation's 
    nuclear-powered fleet defense requirements. During 1999, the program 
    expects to reach 4,900 cumulative reactor-years of safe operation, 
    and will continue to support and improve operating reactors and 
    plant components. In addition, the program will continue to develop 
    nuclear reactor plant components and systems for the Navy's new 
    attack submarine, procure equipment needs for development and 
    testing activities, and maintain or shut down aging facilities as 
    appropriate.
        International Nuclear Safety and Security.--The International 
    Nuclear Safety Program reflects the Department's commitment to 
    improve the safety of Soviet-designed nuclear reactors abroad. Since 
    1992, DOE has led the U.S. Government's effort to reduce the health 
    and environmental threats posed by the continued operation of aging 
    nuclear reactors in Russia, Ukraine, and other countries in the 
    region. The request supports improvements in management and 
    operational safety, engineering and technology upgrades, and 
    encourages development of a U.S. equivalent nuclear safety culture.
        Environment, safety and health (Defense).--The Office of 
    Environment, Safety and Health is a corporate resource that provides 
    Departmental leadership and management to protect the workers, 
    public, and environment. The programs in the Other Defense 
    Activities are Oversight, Health Studies, and Radiation Effects 
    Research Foundation support as well as Program Direction.
