This CEL addresses challenges encountered when obtaining new instrumentation and getting it implemented in the field while permitting laboratory facilities to continue full operation.During 2010, the RPL facility - a DOE Class 2 nuclear research facility - started a push to upgrade radiation protection instrumentation.The upgrades targeted three aspects of measurement performed at the facility: Hand and foot exit survey instrumentation (PCMs), single-sample LSCs for local tritium counting, and electronic dosimeters.While numerous challenges were encountered during this upgrade effort, a number of advantages (including cost savings) were realized by facility personnel and management that validated the need for the upgrade.
