University of California submits bid for LANL contract

-A A +A
By Tris DeRoma

The University of California was the only organization to confirm Monday it had submitted a bid to manage and operate Los Alamos National Laboratory for the next five years.

Bids were due to the National Nuclear Security Administration Monday. The NNSA would not release information about the contractors that submitted bids and would not say when bids would be opened.

The UC system confirmed its submission in an email to the Los Alamos Monitor.

“I can confirm that UC submitted a proposal today for the Los Alamos National Laboratory management contract. We aren’t confirming or discussing any of our bid partners at this time,” UC Spokeswoman Stephanie Beechem said.

UC is a managing partner in Los Alamos National Security LLC, the consortium operating the lab.

Retired lab employee and current Los Alamos County Council Chairman David Izraelevitz wrote a letter to the UC Board of Regents in late November, urging the board to consider including in its bid language that promotes the idea that not-for-profits like the UC system should be taxed for their gross receipts, just like the for-profit companies are that do business in New Mexico.
