Summary
The United States must generally account for nuclear material it has obtained under nuclear cooperation agreements with foreign partners. The agreements generally impose certain conditions, including that the material be used for peaceful purposes. Material subject to such conditions is called "obligated." The United States relies on NMMSS to track obligated material and to help demonstrate U.S. compliance with agreements. Material not subject to agreement conditions is called "unobligated." Some forms of uranium, such as LEU, are used to maintain the nuclear weapons in the U.S. stockpile, but the U.S. inventory of unobligated LEU is declining. GAO was asked to review the practice of obligation exchanges and the reliability of certain NMMSS data. This report examines (1) the number of obligation exchanges in the United States since 2003, and the reasons for them, and (2) how DOE and NRC ensure such exchanges are accurately tracked and reported through NMMSS. GAO recommends that DOE and NRC (1) clarify in guidance when facilities may carry negative obligation balances and (2) develop an early-warning monitoring capability in NMMSS to alert DOE when the inventory of unobligated LEU is particularly low
