NRC is primarily funded by fees from current licensing and certification projects. I am interested in obtaining a view into the regulatory process to determine if there are areas where a disproportionate amount of time is spent while producing only a small (or negligible) safety improvements. Is it possible to invent a new tool that would allow decision makers and the public to figure out where the majority of regulator's time is spent when certifying new reactor designs or when reviewing new COL license applications?
Idea No. 35
