Two National Nuclear Security Administration officials have been reassigned after the July 28 security breach at the Y-12 National Security Complex.

Daniel Hoag has been temporarily reassigned to the Oak Ridge Site Office, NNSA Administrator Thomas D’Agostino said in an Aug. 7 staff memo. Hoag has been deputy manager of the new NNSA Production Office, or NPO, which oversees nuclear production missions at Y-12 in Oak Ridge and the Pantex Plant near Amarillo, Texas.

Hoag’s appointment was announced in July, shortly before the security breach. He served as the chief operating officer for Pantex and Y-12, reporting to NPO Manager Steven Erhart in Oak Ridge.
