12 GeV Upgrade
At the request of DOE's Office of Nuclear Physics, Daniel Lehman, director of the Office of Project Assessment in DOE's Office of Science, convened a team of 20 experts and 14 observers in an Independent Project Review of the 12 GeV CEBAF Upgrade Project at Jefferson Lab on May 7-9. The purpose of the review was to assess all aspects of the project as it re-establishes the DOE Performance Baseline due to a directed change that reduced the FY12 congressional appropriation. The review team concluded that the project is ready to move forward with the proposed re-baseline following implementation of review recommendations.
