Neile Miller apparently is out as the acting administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration as of June 14.
Michele Jacquiz-Ortiz of Senator Tom Udall’s office was at the Regional Coalition of LANL Communities meeting Friday in Rio Arriba County when she received a text.
Ortiz said, “NNSA acting administrator Neile Miller has decided to leave the agency effective June 14. Dr. Donald Cook, the Deputy Administrator, will advance to become acting administrator upon his resignation.”
Greg Mello of the Los Alamos Study Group also heard from his sources that Miller was out.
“I am sure Ms. Miller tried her best to drain the NNSA swamp in the five months she has been in the top spot, but she did not succeed. She inherited the consequences of bad decisions made by her predecessors, but she also made some very bad calls herself, like overruling her subordinates in order to extend the management contracts at Los Alamos and Livermore, and changing the key scoring official just eight days prior to a $23 billion contract decision,” Mello said.
Miller was appointed acting administrator after Thom D’Agostino retired in December.
