LANS earns incentive fee and contract extension

-A A +A
By The Staff

An assessment by the National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) Los Alamos Site Office has resulted in Los Alamos National Security LLC (LANS) being awarded 87.9 percent of fees available for improved performance.

The assessment spanned Oct. 1, 2007, through Sept. 30 – the second full year LANS has operated the laboratory for the Department of Energy. The award is up from 81.3 percent the previous year.

This is the first year the government could extend the expiration date and is considered another incentive for performance. Ultimately, the contract could be extended up to 20 years.

The extension from seven years to eight “is a big deal for us, a vote of confidence” that assures another year of stability for the Lab, Deputy Director Jan Van Prooyen said Wednesday shortly after the report was released.

“We have a good management team. They’re experienced, they’re dedicated, and we’re going to get better grades in the years ahead.”

The extension “was our biggest and most important goal,” and gaining it shows Los Alamos is doing quality science and is contributing significantly to national security, Van Prooyen said.
