Did he really say only two points?

Go back and listen to Charlie's spin on the loss of the LANL contract. It sure looks like he is claiming that only 2 points seperated the loss from an extension. Really? An employee nearly dies in an electical accident, after LANL had been specifically warned about electrical safety, and he spins it to make it look like a close decision.

DOE could have assigned any score from 0 to 50 for this near fatal accident. It doesn't matter what the score is, the contract is over this year. To spin it otherwise is a pathetic attempt to safe face.

The story I heard was that the score was much lower than that but the sight office or DOE moved it up 49 percent for some reason. They where not close at all.

They moved the score so that Charlie could save face. The score, such as it is, is completely arbitrary anyway. Furthermore, they people who choose the score are bureaucrats with no practical experience in anything. It is truly a situation of the blind leading the blind while the rich get richer. Why anyone believes this fiasco is somehow good for the country is beyond me.

The whole scoring process for the PEPs is a complete joke to begin with. Its solely handled by the NNSA site office - which has a clear conflict of interest. If they can't give a truly low score slamming LANS since it would call into question their day-to-day oversight of LANL and the LANS contract. So they score it just low enough to end the contract but not where it really would be if you objectively looked at the year's performance and issues.

For once DOE/NNSA (i.e. Charlie's "The Government") finally had some "balls" to do the right thing.

It's the ONLY practice now by LANS Management, they are just hunkering down in their trenches milking the hind tit until it goes dry in one to two years. As an example, I saw Steve Girrens (AD Engineering) with his feet on his desk fast asleep at 10 a.m. Worthless individual. The rest of LANS Management is doing the same, just waiting it out, doing nothing but "CYA", that's it!

No big deal. Everyone does it.

The only thing that Girrens does is coordinate National Engineers Week each year. Tough job for a $750,000 salary!

Please cite your source for that salary number. I don't believe it.
