Our view: An undisclosed evaluation

-A A +A
By The Staff

An undisclosed evaluationThe news that the National Nuclear Security Administration has evaluated Los Alamos National Laboratory’s performance for last year and settled its accounts with Los Alamos National Security, LLC, under the cover of secrecy is disturbing.Some may be suspicious that the federal government has let its problem-prone creation too easily off the hook for the management partnership’s first 18 months of what has been, to say the least, a rocky road.Others may believe Washington has once again made a scapegoat of one of its most visible and iconic national jewels.And there are plenty of signs that NNSA’s own issues may be to blame for a good portion of LANL’s shortcomings.A current special report by the Inspector General of the Department Energy on the department’s management challenges notes a particularly alarming discrepancy along this line.“Our review found that while the dollar value and complexity of department contracts has increased in recent years, the overall number of acquisition officials has essentially remained constant,” the IG wrote in the document released last month.
