Triad National Security, LLC has earned an overall “Very Good” rating and an overall 83.7 percent of its award fee for its Managing & Operating contract at Los Alamos National Laboratory for FY2021. The total amount awarded is $46.7 million out of almost $50 million that was available. The National Nuclear Security Administration announced the performance results in a three-page summary that can be viewed here: https://www.energy.gov/sites/default/files/2022-02/FY21%20Triad%20PES%20Final.pdf.
The summary notes that Triad exceeded many of the objectives and key outcomes under the Performance and Measurement goals, met overall cost, schedule and technical requirements “with accomplishments that outweigh issues”.
LANL Director Thom Mason said Thursday evening that the Laboratory made solid progress over the last year in its core national security, operations and science areas, and that he is pleased that NNSA recognized that in Triad’s performance evaluation.
“The Laboratory was able to deliver on our key FY21 milestones, despite the challenges of the ongoing pandemic, and I expect to repeat that trend this year as we continue to meet NNSA’s expectations, given our stable budget profile,” he said.
Mason continued, “We have work to do: we need to keep institutionalizing our gains, expand our capacity by hiring over 1,300 new employees, further modernize our infrastructure, and increase our procurement of goods and services. We also look forward to continuing to partner with our local communities on issues from housing and transportation to new infrastructure opportunities. It is good to see the significant increase in new housing starts throughout northern New Mexico, which is helping support the Lab’s job growth.”
