UNM looks to manage Los Alamos National Laboratory

The University of New Mexico is interested in the competition to manage Los Alamos National Laboratory.

 One of the university’s senior advisers on national laboratory relations, Joseph Cecchi, said Thursday that school officials are evaluating the bidding process.

The university also threw its hat into the ring when the contract for Sandia National Laboratories was up for bid. That award ended up going to National Technology and Engineering Solutions of Sandia, a subsidiary of Honeywell International.

It was first announced in late 2015 that Los Alamos National Security LLC would be losing its contract to manage the northern New Mexico lab since it failed to earn high enough performance reviews.
