BERKELEY, Calif.— A decision on who will run the Los Alamos National Laboratory probably won't be announced before Dec. 1, University of California Vice President Robert Foley said Thursday.
Rumors have been swirling that an announcement is imminent, but Foley told UC's governing Board of Regents he's not expecting that to happen soon.
In Albuquerque, National Nuclear Security Administration spokesman Al Stotts agreed there would be no announcement before Dec. 1.
He said the Source Evaluation Board was still preparing a report analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of each team bidding on the contract.
The report will then be sent to the acting deputy administrator for defense programs at the NNSA, Thomas D'Agostino, who will pick the winner, Stotts said.
