NNSA sees significant achievements, important improvements in 2012

Tuesday, Dec 18, 2012

As 2012 draws to a close, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) has compiled a list of some of its most important accomplishments and improvements over the past year. The NNSA, in conjunction with its Management & Operating contractor partners, reached significant milestones in its nonproliferation and counterterrorism portfolios, made a host of significant achievements through its work with the United States’ nuclear weapons stockpile, and maintained a constant focus on continuous improvement.

“We had our share of challenges in 2012, but we have much to be proud of,” said NNSA Administrator Thomas D’Agostino. “Our people, both our federal staff and our contractor partners, have done great work executing our mission and improving the way we do business. From our work on the stockpile to our nonproliferation efforts to our contracting strategies, we had a very good year. There is always room to get better, and we are focused on improving everywhere, from security to project management. We see 2013 as full of great things, and we’re excited for what’s to come.”

NNSA’s successes literally spanned the globe; ensured that the United States’ nuclear weapons stockpile was safe, secure and effective; saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars; and continued to align the organization for the next decade. Even when NNSA stumbled, setbacks were met with swift, corrective action and a focus on lasting improvement.
