Director Charlie McMillan announced Wednesday during an all-employee meeting that the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) has agreed to extend the contract to manage Los Alamos National Laboratory by one year.
In a memo that went out to employees following the meeting, McMillan shared NNSA’s official communication about the contract extension to stakeholders, which notes that “NNSA has determined to grant Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS) a final Award Term for performance in Fiscal Year (FY) 2015, extending the period of performance through FY 2018. No further award terms are available under the contract; therefore, it will expire on Sept. 30, 2018.
In keeping with the director’s pledge to keep employees informed of developments as they occur, a Contract Transition page has been set up on the Lab’s internal website. Information related to the contract transition, including news updates, memos and FAQs, will be housed on this webpage, which will serve as a one-stop shop for transition information.
