Leaders picked for Los Alamos

The UT System and its industrial partner, Lockheed Martin Corp., won't know until about Dec. 1 whether their joint bid to operate Los Alamos National Laboratory is successful.

But they've already lined up a team of 18 "critical personnel" who would oversee the nuclear weapons lab in New Mexico. Jack Burns, currently vice president for academic affairs and research for the four-campus University of Colorado System, would become a deputy lab director and a UT System employee if the bid is successful. Burns is a professor of astrophysical and planetary sciences.

The lab's director would be C. Paul Robinson, a nuclear arms negotiator for President Reagan who went on to direct Sandia National Laboratories for Lockheed Martin.


Full Story

It would be interesting to know which 18 non-critical LANL managers would be vacated to make room for the new guys.
I would ask why these positions are not going to be competed!
Thought it was all the positions reporting directly to the Director?

Arguably, they have been competed to DOE/NNSA.
