G2: The National Nuclear Security Administration’s innovative G2 project optimizes investments of tax payer dollars for a wide scope of mission critical activities, from infrastructure recapitalization, maintenance, safety, and nuclear non-proliferation. Used to manage approximately $2.3B in annual appropriations, the G2 system integrates scope, schedule, budget, and metrics information to provide financial transparency and operational accountability to Congress. With geospatial visualizations and business intelligence analytics, G2 gives NNSA Headquarters, Field Offices, and DOE Sites the ability to analyze key data in a holistic manner from a single repository of program data. Mobile applications complement desktop interfaces so users can access real time data from anywhere, anytime.
The G2 project has been recognized by the Project Management Institute as the 2010 Distinguished Project, the first time a federally-funded project was awarded by the PMI. The software quality program established by Acato was cited as one of the reasons for the award.
The G2 project was honored again in 2015 by the National Defense Industrial Association with the Association for Enterprise Information’s (AFEI) Excellence in Information Award.
On behalf of the G2 Project, James McConnel, Associate Administrator for the Office of Safety, Infrastructure & Operations said, “The enterprise contribution is impressive. From congressional leaders who set budgets to facility operators, NNSA’s G2 system drives risk-based decisions at the enterprise level. Defensibility, traceability, and risk-based decision-making are now the norm at NNSA. We are proud to receive the AFEI excellence award.”
Eagle-I: Acato designed, implemented, and executes the SQA program for the Environment for Analysis of Geo-Located Energy Information (EAGLE-I), the first technology ever to track power outages across the nation.
An interactive geographic information system (GIS), EAGLE-I automatically collects electrical service grid status from utility company websites every 15 minutes, replacing tedious hours of emails and telephone calls. The system covers 75% of all electricity customers across the country and maps the data into a near-real time picture of the nation’s grid status – what’s up and running, where outages exits, when service is restored.
Since 2002 with Hurricane Sandy, the system has informed decisions to mitigate human and economic impacts from natural disasters. The quality of the system is the quality of the decisions.
