Review of Governance Reform in the National Nuclear Security Administration


Project Scope:

The National Academies will establish a committee to evaluate the implementation plan developed by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and DOE in response to the FY2016 National Defense Authorization Act, and the subsequent implementation of such plan. The study will be carried out collaboratively with the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA), as directed by the FY 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, and will follow NAS procedures and policies. The committee will issue interim reports every 6-12 months to evaluate progress in implementing the plan. A final report will be issued at the end of the study to document the overall progress in executing the implementation plan, assess the effectiveness of the reform efforts under that plan, and recommend whether further action is needed.

She was responsible for the conceptual and physics design of numerous nuclear tests and add-on experiments; the areas of focus of these tests included stockpile systems, weapons physics, and advanced development. Dr. Wood-Schultz played an active role in the development of nuclear weapons-related laboratory experiments (AGEX), serving as the lead designer for a series of experiments on the Sandia National Laboratories’ SATURN pulsed-power machine and as a member of the inaugural LANCE (neutron scattering facility) Users Group. Later phases of Dr. Wood-Schultz’s career included involvement in developing concepts and methods for certification without nuclear testing, notably the quantification of margins and uncertainty (QMU), and an increase in her work in nuclear intelligence. The latter led to a 6-month, change-of-station assignment to a DOE intelligence organization. Dr. Wood-Schultz became a LANL Fellow in 2001, received the DOE Award of Excellence in 1988, 1999, and 2004, the STRATCOM Medal of Excellence in 1997, and the LANL Distinguished Performance Award in 1996.
