SRS will be a key player in the Nation’s Energy Security. SRS strives to achieve energy independence in its operations. SRS will leverage its talent and resources to be a major contributor to support the Department’s efforts to develop solutions for achieving energy independence for the Nation through reliable, clean, and affordable sources.
Nuclear Security will remain a driving force at SRS. Defense and Nuclear Nonproliferation Programs conduct their missions and explore opportunities to contribute to the nation’s Energy Security efforts through shared facility use and alternative disposition methods for nuclear materials.
SRS envisions an expanding role for Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) in supporting scientific discovery and innovation. The emphasis will be to leverage SRNL strengths to better support ongoing Site missions and increase future opportunities in order to further the interest of DOE and the Nation in scientific discovery, economic competitiveness, and improving quality of life.
Building on SRS’ past achievements, SRS managers recognize if the Site is not moving forward, it becomes stagnant. To move forward, SRS will exemplify Management Excellence. This means constantly addressing and improving SRS business practices and approaches for greater efficiency and cost effectiveness. EM will accomplish its landlord responsibilities by joining with the NNSA Defense and Nuclear Nonproliferation Programs for a unified team effort, working together for solutions to the formidable challenges of the future. SRS must also ensure workforce planning and execution facilitates the Site vision. This process will be carried out in a way that retains and grows employee skills necessary for present and future missions, while seeking to mitigate negative economic and social impacts to individuals and the community.
