Lockheed Martin-UT team leader proposes changes at Los Alamos

Lockheed Martin-UT team leader proposes changes at Los Alamos


Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - A possible tenfold increase in the federal government's fee to manage Los Alamos lab is deserved if security troubles are brought under control, the head of a team bidding for the contract said.

C. Paul Robinson resigned last month as president of Sandia National Laboratories to head Lockheed Martin Corp.'s team for the contract to manage Los Alamos National Laboratory.


Full Story

One change would be competent and consistent business operations.

Today's COLLOSAL FIASCO with payroll, where pay statements for at least one Group, and possibly many, were ADDRESSED TO THE WRONG RECIPIENTS, putting into the hands of others one's personal information.

While pay information might be on UPTE's web site, other personal information, including retirements savings, SSN, sick and vacation balances, were revealed.

Worse, many people choose not to look up salaries. This incompetent screw-up put that information in the hands of people who might not otherwise have sought out such data.

It can be a very damaging mistake to the social fabric of the Lab.

Maybe when Lockheed wins, they'll bring competent people in to business information systems. UC apparently doesn't care to even hire competent people, let alone QC the work they do.

Payroll errors of any sort are NEVER acceptable.
Not only can LM handle UC/LANL-challenging tasks such as payroll, but THEIR pick for director actually had the stones to resign his old position. Nothing like burning the boats to prove you're committed.
