Scientists at Los Alamos are studying which types of algae are best for fuel production, how to make them grow faster and produce more lipids, and also how to extract the algae from the water in which they live. Read more about algae: Fuel can also be made from other plants by taking apart cellulose-the material in their leaves and stalks. Cellulose is very strong and complex, though, and scientists at Los Alamos are working hard to determine how to break it down

Resources were concentrated primarily on fuel removal with little emphasis on key project actions, such as the development of a risk mitigation plan. Further, we found that a dedicated manager had not been assigned to the project. Finally, prior to 2004, the Department had not structured performance fees to effectively incentivize contractor activities relevant to phase two of the project.

Design of the Uranium Storage Design of the Uranium Storage Facility at the Y-12 National Security Complex DOE/IG-0643 March 2004 These concerns were not addressed because NNSA did not adequately update the cost-benefit analysis for the project before making the decision to adopt the new design. As a result, the Department risks spending at least $25 million more than necessary to construct the storage facility. Consequently, we recommended that NNSA update all cost and schedule assumptions and reevaluate its decision to use the non-berm design when constructing the facility. In a number of prior reviews, the Office of Inspector General has noted project management concerns regarding the Department's efforts to revitalize its infrastructure. For example, our report on the Reconfiguration of the Kansas City Plant (DOE/IG-0616,

59 59 Audit Report: IG-0459 February 15, 2000 Unclassified Computer Network Security at Selected Field Sites Improving security for unclassified information systems is one of the top issues facing government organizations today. This issue developed as Federal agencies migrated from a closed architecture, limited-access, mainframe environment to a web-based, client/server architecture, where literally the world may access government systems. The U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) confirmed this reality in a series of reports to the Congress culminating in the designation of information system security as a "new Government-wide high-risk area."

Based on its analysis of the President's 2001 Nuclear Posture Review, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) estimated that it would need approximately 90 tons of beryllium metal to meet mission requirements over the next 30 years. About 50 tons of the material is currently available for purchase from the Defense Department's National Defense Stockpile. Because the only domestic producer of beryllium metal from ore ceased production in 2000, NNSA had been uncertain how it would overcome the perceived shortfall. Audit Report: IG-0583
