RACER Decision Support Tool (DST)

The Decision Support Tool (DST) uses output from the RACER Risk Calculation Tool (RCT) to provide a framework for evaluating and ranking sources of chemicals and radionuclides based on criteria other than risk, like cost or feasibility, as well as a mechanism to compare alternative approaches for reducing risks for those sources identified as most important. Results from the RACER RCT are combined with other information important to the decision process to support a detailed evaluation of the results, assess potential remedial actions, communicate and document decisions, and track performance. The DST provides the capability to rank multiple sources of risk to focus resources on critical areas, as well as options to compare remedial action alternatives based on attributes such as cost, reliability, risk reduction, and stakeholder preferences.
