Management Controls over Warranties Involving Newly Constructed and Renovated Facilities at National Defense Laboratories

The Department of Energy's (Department) National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA) research, surveillance, and manufacturing capabilities are carried out in facilities, many of which are 50 to 60 years old. Since these facilities are beyond their economic lifetime, NNSA requested and acquired funding not only to construct new facilities but also to restore and revitalize older ones. These construction projects enable NNSA to maintain the critical capabilities necessary to support its programmatic efforts such as nuclear nonproliferation, counterterrorism, and emergency response work.
