Today, NNSA is releasing the Uranium Processing Facility (UPF) “Red Team” report, written by a team led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Thom Mason.  The report outlines options for NNSA to replace the uranium capabilities at Building 9212 at the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, TN by 2025 for not more than $6.5 billion. 

“I’d like to thank Thom Mason of Oak Ridge National Laboratory for his work on this critically important and timely report,” said NNSA Administrator Frank G. Klotz.  “NNSA is committed to maintaining the nations’ highly enriched uranium capabilities for our national security, and successful completion of UPF is key to that effort.”
