About This Study

The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 (FY2016 NDAA)1 called for a 4½-year study, joint between the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine and the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA), to track and assess actions in the nuclear security enterprise aimed at persistent problems of governance and management. In part, the study was intended to force continued attention to these matters that had been diagnosed many times over many years but not successfully addressed. This report is the third in a series of reports to be issued over 2017–2020 as part of that study.2 The Summaries from the study’s first two reports are included in Appendix A. The overall charge for the National Academies–NAPA study is given in Box D.1.

The congressionally mandated report A New Foundation for the Nuclear Enterprise (the "Augustine-Mies" report), released in November 2014, concluded that "the existing governance structures and many of the practices of the [nuclear security] enterprise are inefficient and ineffective, thereby putting the entire enterprise at risk over the long term." Following the release of the Augustine-Mies report, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 called for DOE to develop an implementation plan for responding to the recommendations in that and similar reports. The NDAA also called for a 4 1⁄2-year study, joint between the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine and the National Academy of Public Administration, to evaluate the implementation plan, to track the actions proposed in that plan, and to assess progress. This report is the third in a series of reports to be issued over 2017–2020 as part of that study.
