The long process to determine who will manage the Los Alamos National Laboratory will conclude in the coming weeks.
The University of California has bid for continued management of the New Mexico lab in consortium with Bechtel National, BWXT and Washington Group International.
Their chief rival for the contract is a group led by Lockheed-Martin and the University of Texas.
Though there have been rumors that a decision would be announced today or in the coming days, UC Vice President Robert Foley said Thursday an imminent decision is unlikely.
