Los Alamos National Laboratory is on track to assume the management of the services now provided by its major subcontractor KSL.
KSL Services has been LANL’s site services subcontractor since 2003, when the partnership of KBR Shaw and Los Alamos Technical Associates, was awarded a five-year contract worth about $800 million, with an option for an additional five years. KBR, Kellogg, Brown and Root, was at the time a subsidiary of oilfield services giant, Halliburton.
Currently employing some 900 people, including 650 union members, the company provides such services as facilities maintenance and repair, utility operations, roads and grounds maintenance, waste removal, and custodial services for the Laboratory. Job skills include plumbing, carpentry and basic infrastructure maintenance.
The laboratory assumed KSL’s work-control operations with 79 employees in work planning and scheduling in April 2007.
Speaking at a Laboratory Legislative Oversight Committee hearing this week, Principal Associate Director for Operations Mike Mallory reported that the lab would begin the final transition process Dec. 1. The contract expires Dec. 31.
