TRIAD, a year later

Well we are coming up to the first year of Triad. Things appear to be on upward slope, at least things have not gotten worse. The only people I know that are not happy are a select few managers who seem to be in a state of shell shock after LANS got thrown out. I would guess these are the people on the Bechtel team or some losing team. I happen to know a few who really believed Bechtel was going to win for sure.

This blog isn't all that wonderful anyway

Scooby will delete this but I'll post it anyway. Seems any time he doesn't like the direction posts are taking, even if they are on point and the posters are engaged actively, he disables comments. I truly believe he is trying to shut down this blog without having to take the blame for doing so. Just do it, Scooby. This blog isn't all that wonderful anyway. No one is going to miss it all that much, except for the anti-science guy, whom you seem to love. Enough already. Kill it before it rots from the inside.

LLNL, twelve years later

Twelve plus years after the for profit LLNS LLC won the contract to manage LLNL missions, are we as LLNS employees better or worse off compared to UC/LLNL employees? On a cost basis, are DOE/NNSA missions better or worse off under LLNS management, or is a Triad like non-profit contractor better for LLNL missions and employees working at LLNL?
