Figure 1-1. Basic Relationship in Configuration Management
Configuration Management - index
Introduction/Purpose cont'd

Configuration Management
contractor, in coordination with DOE, must determine if configuration management
should be applied to post-operation activities, such as decontamination and deactivation.
If there is a contractor change at the end of operation, the operating contractor should
work with the post-operation contractor to determine how the configuration management
effort should be relayed to the new contractor.
The contractor must formally document and implement the configuration management
process to be used for the activity in a configuration management plan. The
configuration management plan must address:
how each of the key elements of configuration management will be implemented
(See Chapters 3 through 7);
what are the systems, structures, and components to be included in the
configuration management process and what is the basis/justification for the
selection (See CM SSCs in Chapter 3);
what configuration management training is provided;
who is assigned key responsibilities and authorities for configuration
how interfaces are controlled (for control of interfaces for documentation, see
Section 6.5); and
what programs and procedures must incorporate configuration management.
The individuals implementing the configuration management process must be given
sufficient independence and authority. However, configuration management should not
be viewed as a program separate from other safety and management activities. The very
nature of configuration management is that it is an integrating activity. For this reason,
the individuals who implement configuration management must be knowledgeable about
the various activities being implemented for the facility or activity and the impact
proposed changes might have on that facility or activity. For example, it might be
inappropriate to store a chemical with noxious fumes in an area where new maintenance
activities would require frequent access for maintenance personnel. Another, less
frequently occupied area might be more appropriate. Individuals who are involved in the
day-to-day work of a facility or activity, such as operations and maintenance supervisors,
are likely to be more cognizant of the nearby activities and the impact of proposed
changes. Therefore, they should directly participate in the configuration management
process. In particular, where there is a Cognizant System Engineer for a system, the
Cognizant System Engineer should be involved in the configuration management process
for that system. In addition, as changes to a facility or activity impact the content of
training programs, the training organization should be involved in the configuration
management process.
The contractor must incorporate configuration management requirements into its
procedures and other work processes, and, consistent with 10 CFR 830.122(e), perform
work in accordance with those procedures and work processes. Furthermore, consistent
