Maybe we should make a new agency to provide some real oversight and accountability.
The ANSAC, agency of nuclear security and compliance? It could be time to accept the reality that the United States no longer has the capabilities, infrastructure, or human resources that are needed to be ensure the arsenal. One possibility is for complete privatization, we just hand it over to a private company and let the free market enforce the rules. I bet there would be no more WIPs, stolen mustangs, NIFS, lost disks, and if anything like that happened some heads would role. We would save the taxpayers a load of money as well. Tell me where I am wrong?

The UK has come closer to privatization -- opening management competition to foreign firms, aka Lockheed-Martin. Things are indeed going more nearly perfect, at least as reported by The Guadian:

Waste issues at AWE...

7:41 for starters you are wrong about WIP [sic], the "stolen" mustang, and the missing disks.

How can one be wrong about WIPP? The disks where missing, the media keeps saying that a Mustang was stolen. In the end it is all perception and private corporations can control perception much better than government run organizations. You need to get this through your heads, it is all perception.

So if anyone "perceives" something, that person's perception is always the truth? Or maybe "truth" is a meaningless concept to you? What planet did you say you are from? Because I want to make sure I never land there by mistake.

Another report in a long list of official reports just like it to be quickly forgotten.

The reports can't be forgotten when they are never read. The long list of reports on the Labs have made for great fire starter in the winter.

The reports cannot be read, too much money at stake.

Who cares at this point? Do your job, don't cause problems and get on with your work at the lab.

These reports mean nothing to the real power brokers in the United States. If they did, the serious problems they document would have been fixed decades ago.

Three Vice Presidents (and now the President) of technical divisions at Sandia National Laboratories do not have a Ph.D.: Hruby, Walker, Vahle. To my knowledge, these are the first ever Vice Presidents without a Ph.D. in Science or Engineering to lead techical divisions at Sandia.

Adam Rowen (no longer manager of the Materials Chemistry department) from Sandia National Laboratories does not have a Ph.D.
