the na 00 vision
The NA-00 Vision


We are a unified organization, centrally governed.We do our work  at headquarters, in thefield, and around the world.


“Become the cornerstone for the Administrator

and Principal Deputy of a unified organization, centrally governed to enable and facilitate changes in other areas.”

To fulfill the vision, NA-00 must:

  • Build the NNSA and NA-00 Operating Models
  • Arrest the declining state of infrastructure throughout NNSA
  • Achieve measureable operational excellence
  • Achieve scalable, repeatable, predictable, and transparent
  • cyclic processes
  • Efficiently manage scarce resources particularly people and funding
na 00 20 initiatives
NA-00-20 Initiatives
  • Builder Sustainment Management System (BSMS)
  • End State Planning
  • G-2 Infrastructure Module
  • Risk-Based D&D

why bsms
  • State of the Art condition “risk of failure” assessments based on engineering data with results comparable across Nuclear Security Enterprise (NSE).
  • Reduction in costs of assessment.
  • Common frame of reference for discussing infrastructure condition with Department of Defense.
  • Opportunity to build collaboration with Corps of Engineers to put NNSA on the cutting edge of infrastructure assessment, planning, and management.


end state planning basic premise
End State Planning – Basic Premise

NNSA is a government-owned aerospace scientific, consulting, and production enterprise with a mature product line and multiple customers. Its nuclear weapon “backbone” supports all NNSA missions; to sustain that backbone with its mature product line NNSA needs to grow national security and other business lines that draw on the core competencies of the backbone. NNSA’s infrastructure must be “right-sized” to support both the backbone and the surrounding business lines.


end state planning concept
End State Planning - Concept
  • The first “P” in PPBE.
  • Develop NNSA planning guidance based on existing site guidance and comparable policies from industry and academia
  • Plan for all customers.
  • Each site proposes the end state that will meet its current mission and business development requirements.
  • NNSA integrates site end states into a single “right-sized” enterprise end state, approved by program offices, and translates that “right-sized” end state into a capital investment roadmap.
  • “Right-Sized” means redundancies are identified and defensible, utilities and other enabling infrastructure are scaled to mission, and consistent with national consensus standards.
  • End states are updated annually.

risk based d d
Risk-Based D&D
  • The business case for proposed D&D projects is broader than the often minimal reduction in operating and maintenance costs.
  • Allowing facilities to remain standing for many years with minimal maintenance and surveillance creates risk.
  • Management of that risk needs to be quantified and tracked along with footprint.
  • Footprint, by itself, is an imperfect metric that steers D&D investments toward the lower cost per square foot facilities, away from the more expensive projects and away from management of the risks of extended minimal maintenance and surveillance.


take aways
Take Aways
  • Enterprise level perspective
  • Moving infrastructure toward a transparent, enterprise level, data-driven assessment and planning model, with automated data entry and decision processes
  • Risk-based infrastructure decisions
  • Scalable, repeatable, predictable, and transparent cyclic processes

na 00 accomplishments to date
NA-00 Accomplishments To Date
  • Established NA-00 Headquarters organizations, realigned NNSA Field Office personnel to report directly to NA-00, consolidated Y-12 and Pantex Field Offices into the NNSA Production Office (NPO)
  • Issued Strategic PEP, which streamlines NNSA evaluation of contractor performance by focusing on strategic outcomes indicative of acceptable overall performance in lieu of its historic tactical focus. Ensures consistency across the enterprise and assesses the M&Os on common criteria.
  • Established Sustainability Center of Excellence and Quality Management Center of Excellence
  • Developed standardized Leadership Strategic Performance Objectives.
  • Established employee SPOs by functional area to increase visibility of the Headquarters Program Functions to the performance of the Field Office personnel executing the mission; i.e. FPDs, COs, and GC)
  • Established the Capabilities Based Field Office (CBFO) structure, which is the result of a unified approach to identify essential common functions that NNSA field offices must perform, and realign resources to best execute the mission
  • Established Performance Reporting: NA-00 White boarding, Action Tracking and Dashboard
  • Transferred funding from DP to NA-00 to support facilities and infrastructure operations and maintenance
  • Lead in initiating and integrating an enterprise-wide management system that complies with an international consensus standards (ISO 9000 – 9008) to improve efficiency and financial stewardship.
  • Approved Business Management System and Business Model

nnsa bsms goals
  • Implement for all BSMS supported infrastructure by 9/14/2014.
  • Draw on Construction Engineering Research Laboratory development activities to get on “cutting edge” of infrastructure maintenance and to participate as possible, including development of utilities module.
  • Fully implement CAIS for infrastructure not currently addressed by BSMS.
  • Set a precedent to take NNSA to the cutting edge of infrastructure planning and management.


bsms implementation concept
BSMS Implementation Concept
  • Validate/fully implement UNIFORMAT II inventory used by CAIS
  • Train assessment and planning staff
  • Integrate BSMS training into site training programs
  • Integrate “distress” assessments with existing maintenance and assessment practices and procedures
  • Conduct initial assessments
  • Determine programming parameters
  • Validate uniform implementation across complex
  • “First Wave” will further refine gap before formal tasking issued to sites.


current strategy
Current Strategy
  • Implement at two “First Wave” sites. With “Second Wave” starting a few months later.
  • Develop high level milestones that can be incorporated into contractor performance evaluation plans.
    • LLNL and Y12 lead effort, with other sites following.
    • Set/revise milestones based on leader’s experience.
    • Implement milestones through “rolling wave” planning.
  • M&O’s develop plans to meet milestones.
  • Implement “off the shelf” with no modifications other than those needed to tailor to unique building components.
  • NA-00-20 develop MDI guidance and plans.
  • Use deadlines, milestones, and award fee to create sense of urgency.


bsms near term steps
BSMS - Near Term Steps
  • USACE provides integrator as single point of contact for NNSA.
  • Understand implementation by other agencies, establishing networking contacts with others at same and more advanced stage of implementation.
  • Working with integrator and “First Wave” sites, develop high level milestones and an estimate of funding to be provided to USACE.
  • Sign Supplemental Agreement under existing MOU.
  • Develop quantified performance measures of implementation success.
  • Identify training available, develop a strategy for making it available to sites (M&O’s or NNSA fund? Train the Trainer? ...?).
  • “Roll out” BSMS in a series of VTC’s with each site as soon as possible to keep all M&O’s and their federal offices aware of plans, progress and their roles, to obtain their inputs to implementation memorandum, and to invite sites to join Y12 and LLNL in “rolling wave” implementation.
  • Develop, in concert with NNSA program offices, a plan for MDI with screening questions oriented around NNSA mission.
  • Determine delta between BSMS and DOE policy and document equivalencies.
  • Based on above, develop a high level tasking memorandum to direct sites to implement BSMS, including high level milestones to be used in fee determinations, with a complex-wide “kick-off” training session and workshop hosted by CERL.


what iffer concept
What-Iffer - Concept
  • Based on Y12 planning proposal.
  • Integrates operating spending, maintenance spending, and capital investment in a risk-based “zero sum” budget.
  • Will be used by NNSA to inform budget decisions made between embargo of the budget and submission of budget to Congress.
  • NNSA will send out a “data call” when requirements are established.
