The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) received the 2015 Excellence in Enterprise Information Award from the Association for Enterprise Information (AFEI) recently at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C.

The award honors the agency’s work on its state-of-the-art program-management information system, known as G2, which aims to optimize investments into infrastructure  maintenance, recapitalization and safety, as well as support nuclear nonproliferation effort using cost-effective approaches.

NNSA utilizes Agile IT development practices to effect G2 enhancements every seven weeks. With G2, NNSA can analyze key data on the level of $2 billion in annual investment decisions.

"The enterprise contribution is impressive,” James McConnell, associate administrator for the Office of Safety, Infrastructure & Operations, said. “From congressional leaders who set budgets to facility operators, NNSA’s G2 system drives risk-based decisions at the enterprise level."

There are currently over 900 system users who track 19,000 monthly actions through schedules, scope and financial data -- including maps, photos, diagrams and inventory -- with process-automated change control, notifications and business rules. Tablet and mobile-phone applications are also integrated to work alongside online desktop services in real time. The data is collected by G2 to oversee infrastructure risks at NNSA sites.
