Reorg in GS?

Rumor is GS at LLNL is going to reorg what have you heard?


Anonymous said...

Maybe that should read, "A first meaningful org in GS?"

The end of Office of Strategic Outcomes (OSO)?

...or were they already (previously) reorg'ed out of GS?

Looks like a shuffling of the deck. No real overhead reform.

Realignment of the Global Security Principal Directorate

The Global Security Principal Directorate (GS) is realigning its organization to better serve customer needs and to enhance technical synergies. GS is currently organized around four major programs: Intelligence Community Support, Chemical and Biological Security, Nuclear Counterterrorism, and Energy and Non-proliferation. As the GS customer base evolves, it is imperative that the organization adapts to these changes and takes advantage of technical adjacency.

All (non-stockpile) nuclear support will be moved into one organization, N Program. N Program will now have the majority of executed work for the three NNSA sponsors: NA-20, NA-40, and NA-80 (Defense Nuclear Non-proliferation, Office of Emergency Operations, and Counterterrorism and Counterproliferation). In addition, N Program will execute the Department of Homeland Security Domestic Nuclear Detection Office portfolio, the Department of Defense (DoD) Defense Threat Reduction Agency nuclear portfolio, and the Department of State portfolio. This move will provide sponsors with consistent and integrated Laboratory support, while simultaneously simplifying sponsor relationship management.

E Program will now be focused on energy, environment, and critical infrastructure security. Consequently, the Joint Conflict and Tactical Simulation and critical infrastructure protection projects including Rail Security will move into E Program to enable the organization to be more responsive to current and emerging needs in nuclear materials and infrastructure protection.

Effective July 1, 2014, GS will consist of the following four program areas:

N Program – The mission of N Program is to develop cutting-edge technical solutions and provide expert technical support to the Nuclear Nonproliferation, Nuclear Counterterrorism, and Nuclear Emergency Response priorities of the federal, state, and local government.

E Program – The mission of E Program is to develop, integrate, and apply science and technology and policy expertise to national problems in energy, environment, and critical infrastructure protection.

S Program – The mission of S Program is to conduct applied research and development and support operational capabilities necessary to defend the nation against the evolving nature of chemical, biological, and explosives threats.

Z Program – The mission of Z Program is to assess international threats from Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and emerging and disruptive S&T and to develop and apply technologies to detect and characterize these threats.

Global Security and its leadership team are committed to providing cutting edge science and technology solutions to the nation’s most challenging WMD, and energy and environment related threats. I have confidence that this realignment will best position Global Security to continue to be a key leader in this critical mission area for many years to come.
