Nuclear Regulatory Commission: Revision of Fee Schedules; Fee Recovery for Fiscal Year 2014
GAO-14-841R: Aug 20, 2014
- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC) new rule on the revision of fee schedules and fee recovery for fiscal year 2014. GAO found that (1) the final rule amends the licensing, inspection, and annual fees NRC charges to its applicants and licensees. The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990, as amended, requires NRC to recover through fees approximately 90 percent of its budget authority in fiscal year 2014, not including amounts appropriated for Waste Incidental to Reprocessing, amounts appropriated for generic homeland security activities, and Inspector General services for the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board; and (2) NRC complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
