The losing contractor in a bid to manage Los Alamos National Laboratory has decided not to protest the government's decision.
A coalition including Lockheed Martin Corp. and the University of Texas lost the bid to manage the lab on Dec. 21. The U.S. Department of Energy instead chose a team including the University of California and Bechtel National.
"Although we are very disappointed with the outcome, we have decided at this time not to protest," Lockheed spokeswoman Wendy Owen said by telephone on Wednesday.
She declined to elaborate.
