Description
 
The Nat. Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), a semiautonomous agency in the Department of Energy (DOE), is responsible for protecting sensitive assets, including classified information and plutonium used at its contractor-operated sites to carry out nuclear weapons-related missions. Contractors provide security at NNSA's sites under the direction and oversight of NNSA's headquarters Office of Defense Nuclear Security (DNS), NNSA field offices, and DOE. In response to rising security costs and other concerns, from 2009 to 2012, DOE and NNSA initiated various reforms to identify and eliminate potentially unnecessary security costs; realign security requirements that may be impeding sites' productivity; and streamline federal oversight. After a serious security breach at its Y-12 site in July 2012, however, NNSA reexamined some of its reforms and considered additional actions. This report examined (1) DOE, NNSA, and contractors' implementation of the 2009 to 2012 security reforms, including any benefits or drawbacks they identified for NNSA and its sites; and (2) NNSA's actions or plans to improve security performance and oversight after the Y-12 security breach. Table and figures. This is a print on demand report.
