NNSA releases contractor performance evaluations
The National Nuclear Security Administration last week released performance evaluation summaries on the effectiveness of its management and operating (M&O) contractors in meeting the agency’s expectations during fiscal year 2020.
The summaries feature assessment “scorecards,” as well as links to M&O contractor performance evaluation and measurement plans. Also included are specific contractor accomplishments, plus issues requiring attention.

The U.S. Department of Energy – Nuclear Energy supports student research through direct support of research and development (R&D) programs across the United States as part of the Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP). Additionally, the Integrated University Program (IUP) works concurrently to attract qualified nuclear science and engineering students (NS&E) to nuclear energy professions by providing undergraduate-level scholarships and graduate-level fellowships. The scholarships and fellowships are focused on two-, four-year, and graduate programs in science and engineering disciplines related to nuclear energy such as nuclear engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemistry, health physics, nuclear materials science, radiochemistry, applied nuclear physics, nuclear policy, radiation protection technology, nuclear power technology, nuclear maintenance technology, and nuclear engineering technology. The papers in this session are outcomes made possible by this support.
