The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) prepared a Supplement Analysis (DOE/EIS-0236-S4-SA-02, January 2020) and determined that no further NEPA documentation at a programmatic level is required for implementing a Modified Distributed Center of Excellence Alternative for plutonium operations to enable producing plutonium pits at a rate of no fewer than 80 pits per year by 2030. In this Amended ROD, NNSA announces its programmatic decision to implement elements of a Modified Distributed Centers of Excellence Alternative whereby Los Alamos National Laboratory (will produce a minimum of 30 war reserve pits per year for the national pit production mission during 2026 and implement surge efforts to exceed 30 pits per year as needed. NNSA will implement this decision without construction of the Chemistry and Metallurgy Research and Replacement Nuclear Facility.
