LOS ALAMOS M&O (TRIAD)
I provided executive leadership in the management of technical programs, operations, and business processes critical to the Nuclear Security Enterprise and Environmental Management. I led numerous studies and initiatives to address technical issues impacting the laboratories and production sites, applying systems engineering and risk analysis tools to develop cost effective and timely solutions. I led several priorities including repackaging of high activity drums stored above ground in TA-54 at LANL and shipping them to WIPP for final disposal. This activity addressed DNFSB letters to the Secretary regarding concerns with high risk of wildfires in northern New Mexico. The year-long initiative resulted in a reduction of Material-at-Risk at LANL with no incidents and being granted an NA-1 coin. Retrieved 17 canisters of Remote Handled waste, first for LANL, from TA-54, safely and compliantly, and shipped to WIPP. The project was highly visible and withstood multiple rounds of nuclear safety and readiness activities involving multiple organizations. Project was a success and without incident. Led the transition of the Grand Junction Office contract from a large international business to 2 small business contracts. This required close coordination of functions between the 2 small business contractors to ensure safety, compliance and resources were not overlooked. During a presidential election year, I was able to guide the federal office in achieving a 25% reduction in cost while maintain compliance on cleanup agreements with EPA and state of Utah.
