The Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA) released its annual report, the Fiscal Year 2021 Stockpile Stewardship and Management Plan – Biennial Plan Summary (FY 2021 SSMP).
The FY 2021 SSMP comprehensively lays out DOE/NNSA’s plans to ensure the safety, security, and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile and to maintain the scientific and engineering tools, capabilities, and infrastructure that underpin the nuclear security enterprise.
NNSA also publishes the annual Prevent, Counter, and Respond: A Strategic Plan to Reduce Global Nuclear Threats (NPCR) report to Congress as a companion document to the SSMP, which outlines the equally vital missions to reduce the threats of nuclear proliferation and nuclear terrorism. While NNSA has historically published these reports jointly, NNSA has decided to release these reports separately this year and expects to release the NPCR soon.
