LANL makes POGO top billing
Here are the opening and closing paragraphs, and the entire letter is at the link below:
In the interests of greater contractor accountability, this letter urges that seriously reduced performance award fees be awarded to Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS) for its management performance in FY 2014. The days of hefty profits and contract extensions granted through waivers to performance standards should be long over. In our view, LANS’ incentive award fee should be cut at least in half because of its inability to perform major plutonium operations at PF-4, and its unauthorized changes to transuranic waste handling procedures that led to radioactive contamination of workers and the closure of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant.
To sum up, as a matter of good governance, proper federal oversight and contractor accountability, we again urge you to cut LANS’ possible incentive award fee for FY 2014 at least in half. Moreover, given its major failures, you should seriously consider whether it is in the best interests of the American taxpayer to have LANS continue to operate the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
