The Contractor Requirements Document (CRD) in DOE O 413.3 states for project
management systems for acquisition of capital assets:
A configuration management process must be established that controls changes to the
physical configuration of project facilities, structures, systems, and components in
compliance with ANSI/EIA-649, National Consensus Standard for Configuration
Management. This process must also ensure that the configuration is in agreement with
the performance objectives in the technical baseline.
DOE O 413.3 requires contractors to use ANSI/EIA-649 for configuration management.
Wherever the provisions of DOE O 413.3 apply, DOE and the contractor should
determine whether to use ANSI/EIA-649 in lieu of this standard or to use this standard to
supplement ANSI/EIA-649. In addition, Chapter II of DOE O 413.3 contains specific
requirements for Baseline Change Control that may apply (See Chapter 5).

FIGURE 2-1 CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT INTERFACES
Section 184.108.40.206 of DOE O 420.1 states specific requirements for configuration
management for DOE hazard category 1, 2, and 3 nuclear facilities and references this
standard for further guidance.
This standard recognizes the need for configuration management of software used to
perform functions or analysis related to safe operations, but it does not provide detail on
the special considerations related to software configuration management. For example,
DOE STD 1121 states that dosimetry codes should be subject to configuration
management including records of the version of the code, the user's manual, instructions
