Mason: Off to a ‘pretty good start’

Taxes and transition were among the topics addressed by Los Alamos National Laboratory Director-Designee Thomas Mason Monday during his visit to the Secret City.

Mason, who was at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, for 19 years – 10 as its director – made the Monitor his first stop after meeting with LANL employees earlier in the morning as part of the transition process that will see Triad National Security, LLC, take full management control of the lab by Nov. 1.

“So far I think we’re off to a pretty good start,” Mason said. “We got the notice to proceed on July 3 that said transition starts on July 5. That gave us a couple of days to book our plane tickets and get out here for last Monday. Then we jumped right in and began getting ourselves oriented.”

Mason said there was a lot of legwork that had already been done by the time he arrived in Los Alamos.
