Triad National Security Takes the Helm at Los Alamos National Laboratory

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Los Alamos National Laboratory begins operations today under a new management and operating (M&O) contract between Triad National Security, LLC (Triad) and the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). The NNSA awarded the M&O contract to Triad on June 8, 2018.
“The new leadership team at Los Alamos is determined to strike the right balance between mission delivery for the nation and safe, operational excellence across the entire Laboratory,” said Thom Mason, the new Laboratory Director and President of Triad. “We are committed to partnering with the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) as an integral part of the National Security Enterprise.”
Triad is a public service oriented, national security science organization equally owned by its three founding members: Battelle Memorial Institute (Battelle), The Texas A&M University System (TAMUS), and The Regents of the University of California (UC).
“I am honored and excited to lead Los Alamos National Laboratory, and to work with its talented and dedicated men and women to transform our culture and position the Laboratory for success well into the future,” said Mason. “Each and every employee is critical to the success of Los Alamos National Laboratory. The employees and the surrounding communities play an important part in the success of our mission.”
The new contract, which takes effect today, November 1, 2018, includes a five year base with five one-year options, for a total of 10 years if all options are exercised. The laboratory is one of the largest science and technology institutes in the world and it conducts multidisciplinary research in fields such as national security, space exploration, renewable energy, medicine, nanotechnology, and supercomputing.
“Los Alamos is one of the most important nuclear security assets in the world,” said Texas A&M System Chancellor John Sharp. “We are committed to working with our partners to enhance safety and security at the lab while advancing its world-class science and executing its vital mission.”
Los Alamos National Laboratory is a multidisciplinary research institution dedicated to enhancing national security by ensuring the safety and reliability of the U.S. nuclear stockpile, developing technologies to reduce threats from weapons of mass destruction, and solving problems related to energy, environment, infrastructure, health, and global security concerns
