Independent Follow-up Assessment of Fire Protection at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

This assessment was conducted to follow up on three previous fire protection assessments conducted by the Office of Enterprise Assessments (EA) at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). LLNL is operated and managed by Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC (LLNS) for the National Nuclear Security Administration. The assessment focused on the Plutonium Facility (referred to as Building 332) fire water tank modification project, which was completed in 2015, and the effectiveness of corrective actions taken to address previous EA (and predecessor organization) findings associated with the LLNS fire protection program. All assessment activities were conducted remotely due to COVID-19 pandemic-related travel constraints.
