NNSA_2011_Strategic_Plan_CoverWASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) released its new 2011 Strategic Plan, which details how NNSA will invest in the future, build the nuclear security enterprise required to implement President Barack Obama’s nuclear security agenda and enhance global security, and continue to improve the way it does business. As we work to build “OneNNSA,” a single integrated enterprise that is organized to successfully complete the NNSA mission, the 2011 Strategic Plan will serve as an outline of NNSA’s goals for the next decade and a guide for its planning, programming, and budgeting processes.

In a message included in the Strategic Plan, Administrator Thomas D’Agostino writes: “We are building on the Nation’s renewed commitment to nuclear security. To enhance global and national security, the NNSA is strengthening its ability to ensure that we have the people, tools, and information required to address the broader set of national security needs, including renewal of our facilities. We will execute our mission with the high level of safety, security, ethical, fiscal, and environmental responsibility the Nation expects.”

The new NNSA Strategic Plan outlines the Administrator’s vision for how we will build “OneNNSA,” and how the nuclear security enterprise will implement the mission areas highlighted in the DOE Strategic Plan, including stockpile stewardship, nuclear nonproliferation, counterterrorism and emergency response, and powering the nuclear Navy.

It highlights Administrator D’Agostino’s five key goals for NNSA and includes select initiatives to make those goals a reality. The five goals are:

1. Reduce nuclear dangers;
2. Manage the nuclear weapons stockpile and advance naval nuclear propulsion;
3. Modernize the NNSA infrastructure;
4. Strengthen the science, technology, and engineering base; and,
5. Drive an integrated and effective enterprise.
