  • Fissile Materials Disposition

  • Our objectives are to help orchestrate an international effort to achieve the disposition of Russian excess weapons-grade plutonium; provide overall technical and management oversight of bilateral U.S.-Russia scientific and technical cooperation in this area; facilitate reaching a domestic consensus on and implementation of a strategy for the disposition of U.S. excess weapons-grade plutonium; and monitor implementation of the HEU purchase agreement and the blend-down of U.S. HEU to assure continued success. To achieve these goals, NSIA co-chairs, with the NSC, the Interagency Working Group on Plutonium Disposition and co-chairs the Joint U.S.-Russian Steering Committee on Plutonium Disposition. We are also working with the independent Holdren-Velikhov Commission.
