"...If there were damning factual evidence of anything untoward, it would obviously have been brought forward with great fanfare..."
Well there are some facts
(1) McMillan makes three times more than the last Director before the contract change.
(2) The number of Divisions at LANL increased from 30 to the current number of 120. The number of Directorates also increased by
a factor of four.
(3) The overhead rated have nearly doubled since the contract change.
It stands to reason that if the Director is being paid substantially more than most other managers are also being paid more. It is also a fact that there are now many more managers than before. Now where is the value added to having all this management?
SANTA FE – The annual compensation for Los Alamos National Laboratory director Charles McMillan has topped $1.5 million, federal records show.
That’s up from the $800,348 director’s compensation that the same records showed for 2009 and is nearly three times the LANL chief’s compensation in 2006, the last year the lab was still run by the University of California.
Los Alamos lab watchdog Greg Mello of the Los Alamos Study Group, in an email calling attention to McMillan’s compensation, referred to the performance-based fee adjustments that LANS receives based on evaluating how it met standards set by the federal government.
“So the performance-based bonus system is working just fine, right?” Mello wrote. “It really helped with LANL’s performance vis-a-vis WIPP, didn’t it?”
