The document describes the NRC staff's planned activities in carrying out its responsibilities for monitoring DOE's waste disposal activities at the F-Area Tank Farm at the Savannah River Site, in accordance with the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2005. The NRC staff developed a Technical Evaluation Report (TER) for the F-Area Tank Farm Facility in October 2011, as part of the NRC consultation with DOE in its waste determination. In the TER, the NRC staff identified specific recommendations that if implemented by DOE, NRC staff believed would enhance DOE's demonstration of compliance with the performance objectives in 10 CFR Part 61, Subpart C. In the issued document, the NRC staff identified specific areas associated with those recommendations, as well as other areas, that it intends to monitor in assessing DOE's compliance with the performance objectives. The document describes what the NRC staff intends to do in each of those areas, as well as other activities that will be performed to allow a complete assessment of compliance with the performance objectives. In finalizing the document, the NRC staff considered comments and input from the State of South Carolina.
