Employee Concerns Program

The National Nuclear Security Administration Service Center (NNSA/SC) Employee Concerns Program (ECP) is a formalized alternative means for DOE/NNSA federal, contractor, and subcontractor employees to report concerns as supported by the DOE Secretary Bodman's Program Statement (pdf, 66kb) and the NNSA Administrator's Statement (doc, 22kb).

The concerns may be associated with the:

  • Environment
  • Safety
  • Health
  • Security
  • Fraud
  • Waste
  • Abuse
  • Mismanagement of DOE/NNSA and contractor managed activities or
  • Reprisal for having reported such issues

The program encourages employees to use their own organization's established means for reporting issues. If resolution cannot be achieved, of if there is a fear of reprisal, the DOE/NNSA/SC ECP personnel can assist concerned employees in determining which processes could be used to evaluate and resolve their concerns. This may result in the NNSA/SC ECP office facilitating resolution, referring or transferring the concern, or investigating the concern itself. The NNSA/SC ECP is intended to supplement, not replace, existing processes designed to address concerns and resolve disputes.
