SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 21st day of February 2013.

    For the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
