Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman will announce today that UC beat out Lockheed Martin, the world's largest defense contractor, in the first-ever competition to manage the nation's premier weapons laboratory, the source said.
There will still be a new corporate presence at the lab, however. Bechtel Corp., another defense contractor, partnered with UC in it is bid.
And the lab will get a new director, Michael Anastasio, now director of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, who is leading the UC and Bechtel team.
