Separate competitions for labs

22 July 2004

The current contract for the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will be extended beyond its current 30 September 2005 expiration date in order to separate the two competitions.

Energy secretary Spencer Abraham said: “I have concluded that it is very important to ensure we have the broadest possible competition for future contracts. Separating these two competitions will achieve that result.”

The Los Alamos National Laboratory has been managed since its founding by the University of California on a non-competitive basis. The department had also previously announced its intention to conduct a competition for the management of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The question it had not decided was whether these competitions should be linked, conducted as a single solicitation, or separated.

The competition for the management of the Los Alamos National Laboratory will be conducted by the department’s National Nuclear Security Administration.
