Supporting Our Nation’s Weapons Defense System with Advanced Conduct of Operations and Best-in-Class Operational Readiness at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL)

Amentum successfully led and staffed readiness assessments (Management Self-Assessments (MSA), Contractor Readiness Assessments (CRA), Independent Verification Reviews (IVR), and Federal Readiness Assessments (FRA)) for the Plutonium Processing Facility (PF-4) located in Technical Area 55 (TA-55), the Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Facility, the Weapons Engineering Tritium Facility, and the Transuranic Waste Facilities located in Technical Area 54 (TA-54) at Area G.   This included operations, engineering, maintenance, environmental, emergency preparedness, fire protection, quality assurance, radiological control, management, safety, training & procedures, transportation, waste management, and nuclear safety/criticality readiness in preparation for startup through the performance of more than 15 formal readiness assessments for key weapons processing facilities.

After a 2013 Laboratory wide pause, this was one of the largest resumption efforts in the last 10 years. In addition to supporting the recovery and reconstitution of the LANL conduct of operations program and implementation, our ability to deliver both leadership and world-class subject matter experts allowed for successful restarts and DOE recognition of the LANL readiness process as Best in Class.
