Manager of Nuclear Power Steven A. White has selected and the individual
members of the Board have approved Richard B. Kelly to serve, as a loaned
employee, in the position of Manager of Nuclear Quality Assurance (DA)
for TVA for up to two years.

Mr. Kelly is coming to TVA under TVA Contract No. TV-68879A with Stone &
Webster Engineering Corporation (SWEC). He is a SWEC director, the SWEC
QA Manager, and a stockholder of SWEC, both directly and through various
SWEC stock option plans. He is compensated by SWEC with a salary and
will receive no other personal benefit in connection with any work or
services provided to TVA by SWEC, except as a shareholder and beneficial
owner of less than .l percent of SWEC common stock. No part of his
compensation is specifically related to the volume of business TVA does
with SWEC. He will remain a SWEC director and officer, although he
intends to delegate substantially all of his SWEC QA manager responsi-
bilities to subordinates while holding this TVA job. He will also
continue to receive the above-described compensation from SWEC. These
details of Mr. Kelly's financial interests with SWEC are set out in
Mr. Kelly's February 6 letter to me which is attached.

As a loaned employee, unless otherwise specified, Mr. Kelly is subject to all TVA rules, regulations, and procedures on conduct, conflicts, and ethics applicable to regular TVA employees.

· As TVA's QA Manager, Mr. Kelly will direct and be responsible for TVA's
entire nuclear QA effort, working at the direction of Mr. White. la that
work, it is reasonably anticipated that Mr. Kelly may find it
advantageous to the accomplishment of TVA's work that he call on Stone &
Webster for certain QA engineering support services. These services will
be made available to TVA by SWEC under TVA Contract No. TV-68702A. 1
have determined that the QA engineering services that TVA obtains from
SWEC will be limited to $

per year for two years. My direction to the Office of Nuclear Power in this regard is attached.

Stone & Webster is a large firm. It represents that its annual revenues in its last fiscal year were in excess of $2 billion. Under present contracts, TVA's total annual payments to SWEC will not exceed $8 million per year and the QA engineering work in which Mr. Kelly might participate in directing for TVA will not exceed $

per year, a very small fraction of SWEC's business. These details of SWEC's business are set out in Mr. Matson's February 12 letter to me which is attached.

[blocks in formation]

Thus, Mr. Kelly's disclosed interests in SWEC would prevent him under 18. U.S.c: 208 from participating in any way in TVA determinations on the TVA/SWEC contracts. However, as the Board knows, it could determine that the specifically identified interests of Mr. Kelly in SWEC and the limits we have placed on his participation in any TVA/SWEC contract matter cause that financial interest to be not so substantial as to be deemed likely to affect the integrity of the services which TVA may expect of him and, therefore, waive the prohibitions of the statute ! pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 9. 208(b).

The Individual members of the Board can act by indicating their determinations on the attached Board action form.

As we discussed, the Office of Nuclear Power is to order any QA engineering
work to be obtained from SWEC undee TVA Contract No. TV-68702A with 'quec
and to limit its use of that contract for QA engineering work to $.
per year during each of the next two years. ·
