“NNSA has determined to grant Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS) a final Award Term for performance in Fiscal Year (FY) 2015, extending the period of performance through FY 2018. No further award terms are available under the contract, therefore, it will expire on September 30, 2018.
Both NNSA and LANS are committed to the success of the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), its essential and enduring mission, and its people. Together we seek to ensure the long-term health and vitality of LANL as a world-class institution for harnessing the latest developments in science, technology, and engineering to address the many challenges to our national security and our economy.
The current management and operating (M&O) contract for LANL was awarded on December 21, 2005. It contained a transition period, a base period of seven years (through FY 2013), and the potential to earn up to thirteen award terms, in one-year increments, based on very good performance across the Laboratory. LANS earned four additional terms for performance in FY 2008 through FY 2011, extending the period of performance to the end of FY 2017. LANS did not earn additional Award Terms for performance in FY 2012 through FY 2015. In accordance with the terms of the contract, if the Contractor doesn’t earn additional award term four times, the operation of the Award Term clause will cease. This means there is no additional opportunity to earn term.
Despite not earning the Award Term for performance in FY 2015, this extension acknowledges the improvements made by LANS in mission performance during FY 2015. NNSA offered to grant LANS an additional term in order to facilitate environmental cleanup programmatic changes and to allow DOE EM and NNSA contract competitions.”
