|THPTEV014||Managing Procurements in the Time of Covid-19: SNS-PPU as a Case Study||863|
Funding: Supported by the Dept of Energy, Office of Nuclear Physics under contract DE-AC05-06OR23177 (JSA); and by UT-B which manages Oak Ridge National Laboratory under contract DE-AC05-00OR22725.
In early 2020, COVID-19 swept across the world. The accelerator industry, like many others, was impacted by disease, delays, shortages, and new working conditions. All Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab) employees were sent home in mid-March 2020, with many still working remotely now. At the time, JLab was working on the Proton Power Upgrade (PPU) to the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Procurements had been placed and were being managed, parts were being received and inspected. This paper details the JLab procurement plan for the SNS PPU project, and the mitigations that were developed to continue to support this project smoothly under the limitations imposed by COVID-19.
