... To perform its peer review task, the committee is composed of 14 experts whose expertise spans the issues relevant for reviewing the FFRDC's analysis, including risk assessments, cost estimation, cost-benefit analysis, waste processing, supplemental treatment approaches, legal and regulatory requirements, and large scale nuclear construction projects. A majority of the members have prior experience in studying cleanup activities at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, as well as other DOE-EM sites.
