Description
 
The National Nuclear Security Admin. (NNSA) conducts enriched uranium activities -- including producing components for nuclear warheads and processing nuclear fuel for the U.S. Navy -- at the Y-12 National Security Complex in Tennessee. NNSA has identified key shortcomings in the Y-12 plant's current uranium operations, including rising costs due to the facility's age. In 2004, NNSA decided to build a more modern facility -- the Uranium Processing Facility (UPF) -- which will use nine new technologies that may make enriched uranium activities safer and more efficient. In Nov. 2010, GAO reported on the UPF and identified risks associated with the use of new technologies. This report assesses (1) additional technology risks, if any, since GAO's Nov. 2010 report; and (2) NNSA's actions to address any risks. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
