On June 8, Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) Sandia Field Office Manager Jeffrey Harrell presented a Best in Class NNSA Sustainability Award to a team from Sandia National Laboratories. The award was in the Innovation and Holistic Approach Category for the Materials Sustainability & Pollution Prevention (MSP2) program’s development of several data management systems designed to increase productivity for the MSP2 team and its customers. The data systems have helped reduce paper use, boosted employee productivity, and reduced the need to drive to remote locations to verify and view inventory. 

The Innovation and Holistic Approach category recognizes methods and cross-disciplinary research at the site level that apply innovative ideas to tackle broad-based sustainability issues. The MSP2 program funded the development of the data management systems using revenues from the site-wide recycling program.  Sandia was one of five Best in Class winners announced in the NNSA complex.
