National Nuclear Security Administration



All current Business Operating Procedure (BOP) and NNSA Policy (NAP) documents have been converted to the numbering system for DOE Directives in accordance with Supplemental Directive 251.1A, Directives Management.

Established by Congress in 2000, NNSA is a semi-autonomous agency within the U.S. Department of Energy responsible for enhancing national security through the military application of nuclear science. NNSA maintains and enhances the safety, security, and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile without nuclear explosive testing; works to reduce the global danger from weapons of mass destruction; provides the U.S. Navy with safe and effective nuclear propulsion; and responds to nuclear and radiological emergencies in the U.S. and abroad.
