LANL Report:

In the most recent review of the lab’s performance, dated Dec. 6, the NNSA slashed the performance bonus paid to the lab’s managers, arguing they had failed to meet the agency’s requirements for “ahead of schedule performance” on the project, which the lab had said earlier would be operational by 2011.

It is partially occupied, but equipment installation for the laboratory space is ongoing. The lab’s management team, led by corporate giant Bechtel and the University of California, had claimed it was entitled to a $700,000 performance bonus for its work on the office building and lab, but NNSA only agreed to $176,000.
----------------------------------

Gotta love watching the Bechtel pigs at the top of the LLC's "for-profit" management chain secretly fighting for their executive bonus loot while the hard working employees who do the hard lifting to met these PBIs get.... NOTHING!!!!

This article sure did pull NNSA's pants down. They have been "protecting" LANS SEM incompetence. NNSA knows they made Frankenstein (aka LANL/LLNS) and if Frankie goes down, NNSA will go down with him.

LANL report

I see LDRD gets a negative ranking. What for it did not say.

NNSA hates the LDRD program. They see it as robbery of their funds. You can thank St. Pete for protecting it while he was in office. His legacy lasts awhile longer.

If NNSA thought they could kill it off, they would do so immediately. They may try again to end it at some later date.

Comments here went from 4 to 3 last night, Then back to 4 today. Scooby's censorship button at work, without explanation or reason, as usual. His "editorial" attention is killing the free expression of ideas and feelings on this blog. No posts I've seen cross his "rules" stated on the front page. Scooby. just go away already. (Here comes the "don't let the door hit you..." reply.)

People seem to be expressing themselves fine enough. Not like this blog has stalled like the already-moribund LANL VSP blog.

LDRD is not a fair process. There are ideas that the laboratory should fund for further investment. But LDRD has become social welfare for scientist and people are help their "friends", which is against policy of the labs. get the funding, rather than looking at the best ideas. This is simply wrong and hurting our country to increase scientific knowledge.

"LDRD is not a fair process. "

How is not fair process? I thought the AD's pick what they want. The rest is competed with like a 8% success rate.

Really?? Did you absolutely have to include that last part?? You are what's wrong with our society. Can't disagree without being disagreeable. Sad.

7:03 --- Keep believing .... AD + friends with AD = LDRD funding. I am sure that this is not always the case.. But I have seen it so much. There are some honest AD and some not honest AD.

Concerning their evaluation of LDRD, the guys at the NNSA again demonstrate their fundamental cluelessness and technical incompetence. On the same page, they claim that science performance was good, but LDRD was bad. Yet, the science performance they praise is predominately supported by the LDRD funds. What funding source is supporting the vast majority of those publications they cite? It's pretty simple cause and effect.

Imagine the CEO of Intel coming out saying, "We make excellent processors. I'm real pleased with that. But why again are we wasting all this money on chip design?"
