The multi-university Consortium for Risk Evaluation with Stakeholder Participation (CRESP) has served DOE and its stakeholders since 1995, recently through a cooperative agreement (2006 – 2017) awarded to Vanderbilt University.
The objective of CRESP is to advance cost-effective, risk-based cleanup of the nation’s nuclear weapons production facility waste sites and cost-effective, risk-based management of potential future nuclear sites and wastes. This is accomplished by seeking to improve the scientific and technical basis for environmental management decisions by the Department of Energy (DOE) and by fostering public participation in that search.
