"Today the President announced his intention to nominate Thomas P. D'Agostino as Under Secretary for Nuclear Security and Administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA).

Tom served as NNSA's Acting Administrator for three months and as Deputy Administrator for Defense Programs for the past fourteen months.  In these roles, Tom has done an outstanding job and has earned my full confidence.

With this nomination, we are making NNSA even stronger and I am eager to have Tom step into the NNSA administrator role on a permanent basis.  I look forward to working with Tom as we continue to pursue NNSA's national security mission.  While the nomination is under consideration by the U.S. Senate, Bill Ostendorff will continue serving as NNSA's acting administrator."
