Use of Unlicensed Engineers - Vogtle

Daniel Tait filed this request with the Public Service Commission of Georgia.


From: Daniel Tait

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Georgia Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

All records between Georgia Public Interest Advocacy Staff and Georgia Power regarding a 2012 legal opinion on the use of unlicensed engineers at Vogtle.

As used above, the term “records” includes, without limitation, all communications, correspondence, records of phone conversations, transcripts of testimony, minutes or notes of meetings, electronic mail, PowerPoint or other similar presentations, memoranda, reports, maps, photographs, drawings, data, tables, spreadsheets, formulas, notes, observations, impressions, contracts, and policies or directives, whether in an electronic or print medium, original or copy, or draft or final form.

The document in question in referred to in a Charleston Post and Courier article dated November 2, 2017. The article states, "Georgia Power said it questioned Westinghouse about the use of unlicensed workers in 2012 and received its own legal opinion from the Pennsylvania-based company. That opinion is being sent to Georgia regulators."

The date the legal opinion was sent to Georgia PSC staff is unknown but likely to have occurred in November 2017.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 3 business days, as the statute requires.
