The U.S. Government Accountability Office has once again targeted the National Nuclear Security Administration and placed it on its “high risk” list.
The GAO cites the NNSA’s inability to bring in a Los Alamos plutonium factory at a reasonable rate and on schedule.
The list is put together every two years and it highlights agencies that are “most in need of transformation” because of management and other problems.
According to the report, this is why NNSA is on the high-risk list.
“The Department of Energy, the largest civilian contracting agency in the federal government, and relies primarily on contractors to carry out its diverse missions and operate its laboratories and other facilities.
“Approximately 90 percent of DOE’s budget is spent on contracts and large capital asset projects. GAO designated contract management — which includes both contract administration and project management — as a high-risk area in 1990 because DOE’s record of inadequate management and oversight of contractors has left the department vulnerable to fraud, waste, abuse and mismanagement.
