Organizations and Directorates
The Advanced Test Reactor is the world’s premier nuclear test reactor. It provides unmatched, national priority nuclear fuel and materials testing capabilities for military, federal, university and industry partners and customers.
This directorate is comprised of professionals in finance, contracts, project management and business systems who provide efficient and effective operations and business services that exceed customer expectations as well as an assurance system that safeguards the lab’s operational integrity. Business Management’s six divisions work as a team to enable the lab’s nationally important mission as the Department of Energy’s premier nuclear lab within a complex of 17 national labs. We are part of a community of labs that offers numerous opportunities for networking, training, mentorship and career development.
The Counterintelligence Program protects classified and sensitive programs and information, personnel and assets from foreign intelligence collection and international terrorist activities; and to detect and deter trusted insiders who would engage in activities on behalf of a foreign intelligence service or foreign terrorist entity.
EES&T innovates in transportation systems, clean energy, advanced manufacturing and environmental sustainability. Each day, the directorate performs science-based research to produce solutions with worldwide impact.
ESH&Q provides mission support for all aspects of INL’s key mission areas. The directorate is vital to accomplishing the lab’s mission by supporting day-to-day operations, program compliance and other support staff members.
This directorate focuses on outreach and partnerships with regional organizations. The group includes Commercial Partnerships and Technology Transitions, Community and Regional Engagement, Governmental Affairs (state and federal), and Communications. This directorate was created as part of the Next-Level INL initiative and helps maximize mission outcomes and position INL for future success.
This group provides a wide range of facility and support services across the laboratory. These services include facility management, sitewide utility operations, logistics, property management, infrastructure planning, engineering and construction services, fleet management and logistics, precision machining, calibration services, landfill operations, and food services.
This office is comprised of the laboratory’s risk management functions, including Contractor Assurance, Conflicts of Interest, Supply Chain Risk Management, Export Control, Privacy, and Corporate Investigations.
This organization is vital to the lab’s operation and instrumental to meeting its energy and national security missions. This people-first organization provides the standards, processes, tools, coaching and decision support systems to attract, engage, develop and reward talent that ensures our laboratory performs at the highest level. It is also instrumental in building an inclusive culture that adheres to our laboratory’s values.
This directorate deploys and maintains business applications, services, and infrastructure (servers, networks, storage), and monitors, optimizes, and troubleshoots systems performance while overseeing security and governance. Additionally, IT provides technology innovation, oversight, advisory and strategy for the lab.
MFC is a prime testing center for advanced technologies associated with nuclear power systems. This complex is the nexus of research on new reactor fuels and related materials. As such, it contributes significantly to the development of increasingly efficient reactor fuels and the important work of nonproliferation.
In 2021, INL committed to becoming a national model for achieving net-zero emissions by 2031. The laboratory will do this by developing and implementing carbon-free and carbon-capture technologies on the forefront of the move to zero-carbon emissions.
This directorate protects the nation’s critical infrastructures and prevents the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Within both areas, INL leverages its scientific expertise, engineering discipline and unique infrastructure to develop military, homeland security, energy and industry solutions.
INL leads the nation’s research in advanced nuclear energy technology. Scientists and engineers in this directorate study reactors that can replace fossil fuels with carbon-free energy, materials that lower carbon emissions for every energy source, and applications that help us explore worlds.
This directorate is responsible for programs that protect, control and account for INL security- and emergency-related interests. The functions include unarmed and armed protective forces; protective force training; live fire range operations; explosive breaching operations; physical security; personnel security; foreign visits and assignments; classification and declassification; classified matter protection and control; nuclear material control and accountability; operations security; security incidents and infractions; security investigations; performance testing; security education; human reliability program; vulnerability assessment analysis; design basis threat implementation; the Site Safeguards and Security Plan; emergency planning functions; emergency response; and communication functions.
