budget analysis reviewThe National Nuclear Security Administration spent $1 million less than the agency’s original budget of $245 million for an upgrade project at the Los Alamos National Laboratory’s plutonium facility.

Work to upgrade security at the Technical Area-55 nuclear lab began in 2011 and was completed under the NNSA’s Nuclear Materials Safeguards and Security Upgrade Project.

“By delivering NMSSUP under budget, the NNSA and the NMSSUP Project team demonstrated the importance of responsibility and accountability,” Bob Raines, NNSA associate administrator for acquisition and project management, said Thursday.

NNSA says it has delivered a $725 million project portfolio approximately $50 million under budget — or 7 percent — over the past three years.
