FACILITY REPRESENTATIVE PROGRAM ASSESSMENT GUIDE
The Department of Energy has implemented its Facility Representative Program,
and is looking to continuously improve the program's effectiveness DOE -wide.
An effective Facility Representative Program has many elements, as described in
this Standard. These elements are intended to yield a program that provides
DOE facilities with well-trained Facility Representatives, who spend appropriate
amounts of time in their facilities, and can work effectively with their contractor
management counterparts. The program, to be effective, needs the functional
support of management. To maintain the continued support of DOE
management, the Facility Representative program needs to demonstrate its
continued performance and effectiveness, which i s to be assessed periodically
using this guide. Any assessment of a Facility Representative Program should
determine the extent to which the objectives below are being met, and provide
recommendations on improving the program's effectiveness. Assessment
criteria, review and approach documents (CRADs) for the Facility Representative
Program are contained in DOE M 226.1 (draft) . The Assessment Lines of
Question in this appendix support those CRADs.
Well-trained, qualified Facility Represe ntatives.
Adequate coverage for DOE facilities.
Facility Representatives provide effective oversight of facilities.
Adequate functional support from the Field Element Management.
Performance assessment and feedback program in place.
The purpose of this guide is to provide the Department with a consistent set of
guidelines to assess the effectiveness of Facility Representative Programs.
This guide is provided for use by DOE HQ and Field Elements to assess the
effectiveness of their Facility Representative Programs as described in DOE
