Nuclear Regulatory Commission
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) was created as an independent agency by Congress in 1974 to enable the nation to safely use radioactive materials for beneficial civilian purposes while ensuring that people and the environment are protected. The NRC regulates commercial nuclear power plants and other uses of nuclear materials—such as in nuclear medicine—through licensing, inspection, and enforcement of its requirements.
IEA supports the NRC’s mission and challenges by providing technical editing and desktop publishing services. Under our General Services Administration (GSA) Advertising and Integrated Marketing Solutions (AIMS) schedule, IEA assists the license renewal of nuclear reactors across the United States. IEA provides document layout, assembly, formatting, and technical editing services to help prepare supplemental environmental impact statements (SEIS) and safety evaluation reports (SER) for such nuclear plants as the Columbia Generating Station outside of Richland, Washington, and the Seabrook Nuclear Power Plant in Seabrook, New Hampshire. Using the style guides provided by NRC, we generate electronic copies for easy accessibility; archive documents; embed fonts; update/delete metadata; and designate web-enabled (electronic) bookmarks for navigation. We are responsible for producing production-ready documentation by overseeing the layout, formatting, and version control. In addition, we provide technical editing services to ensure accuracy and consistency across these large documents, which can exceed 1,000 pages. We help to develop a draft and final version of each document to be published for public review.
To manage this project, IEA delivers monthly status reports (MSRs), provides training to document managers within the NRC, and holds both conference calls and face-to-face meetings to discuss project status.
