PROCESS TO DETERMINE FACILITY REPRESENTATIVE STAFFING
The steps below describe an analytical process to determine Facility
Representative staffing for all hazardous facilities at a site. This method provides
a technical approach to determine the appropriate amount of Facility
Representative oversight necessary for a facility given its hazard level,
operational activity and complexity, and programmatic importance. This staffing
approach is also designed to provide DOE with a common human capital
strategy approach such that the D OE enterprise can objectively analyze,
allocate, budget, and justify Facility Representative resources and endstrength
throughout the DOE Complex.
The following elements shall be included in each site analysis:
1. A relative ranking of facilities based on hazards or risks present to the
public, worker, and/or environment.
2. A method for determining Facility Representative coverage (e.g.,
continual, frequent, occasional, etc.) based on facility categorization and
adjusted for other factors identi fied in DOE-STD-1063-2006 such as
facility size, operations complexity, hazards and risks, etc.
3. A determination of Facility Representative Full Time Equivalent (FTE)
requirements based on coverage assigned and adjusted to address
factors considered in Step 2 above.
4. A determination of actual staffing based on Facility Representative FTE
requirements adjusted to account for actual staff time available to support
the Facility Representative function when competing activities such as
collateral duties, leave, training, etc. are considered.
Procedures for conducting a Facility Representative staffing analysis follow each
table. Tables 1 -4 describe the process to determine Facility Representative FTE
levels for facilities or groups of facilities. Tables 5 -6 represent two methods of
determining actual staffing levels necessary to meet the FTE level, taking into
account the duties, responsibilities, leave, and training typical of Facility
Representatives at each site.
