DOE-SC Office of Project Assessment holds FRIB review 12-14 May

The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC) Office of Project Assessment (OPA) held its independent project review of FRIB via remote participation 12-14 May. The main focus of the review was to assess overall FRIB Project progress since the last review in November 2019, with a focus on technical progress.

The review committee was organized into three subcommittees, and FRIB staff gave forty-two presentations. The committee answered all five charge questions affirmatively. Committee members complimented FRIB staff on professional and responsive presentations. They also said staff has taken a thoughtful and proactive approach to the COVID-19 situation.

The OPA assessed all aspects of the FRIB Project — technical, cost, schedule, management, and environmental safety and health — and found that FRIB is making efficient progress toward completion.
