The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Enterprise Assessments (EA) performs independent assessments for DOE senior leadership that report on whether national security material and information assets are appropriately protected and whether Departmental operations provide for the safety of its employees and the public. In addition, EA implements congressionally-authorized contractor enforcement programs, operates the DOE National Training Center (NTC), leads the Department’s efforts to improve program and project management through implementation of the Program Management Improvement Accountability Act (PMIAA), and maintains collaborative relationships within and outside the Department.
