Alternate Title: H. Rept. 106-696: Department of Energy Security Oversight Improvement Act of 2000

"The Committee on Armed Services, to whom was referred the bill (H.R. 3906) to ensure that the Department of Energy has appropriate mechanisms to independently assess the effectiveness of its policy and site performance in the areas of safeguards and security and cyber security, having considered the same, report favorably thereon with amendments and recommend that the bill as amended do pass. […] The purpose of H.R. 3906 is to ensure that the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) of the Department of Energy (DOE) has appropriate mechanisms to assess independently the effectiveness of its policy and site performance in the areas of safeguards and security and cyber security by establishing an Office of Independent Security Oversight within the National Nuclear Security Administration and requiring annual reporting to the Congress by the Administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration. The National Nuclear Security Administration was established as a separately organized agency within the Department of Energy by title 32 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2000 (Public Law 106-65). The NNSA is responsible for nuclear weapons development, naval nuclear propulsion, defense nuclear nonproliferation, and fissile material disposition. Public Law 106-65 also required the establishment of security, counterintelligence, and intelligence offices for the NNSA as well as prescribed personnel, budgeting, and other management practices for the NNSA."
