Could you spell out the significance of this, please?


No desire to put out more rhetoric, throw another "blog" on the fire, not related to lab, have no vested interest in outcome. Reporting verifiable information. Government contracting is not science, logic does not prevail. In contract law you are dealing with abstracts given 'names' not equal to, nor consistent, or required to be consistent with what we would consider 'physical reality'. If this, then that, or this is that, equations, are not required to add up, except in an altered reality artfully created to conform with contract law and maximize the use of loopholes. If we "Ask SBA", SBA would say they are not responsible for evaluating "self-certifications". The RFP was not a small business set aside. Had such been the case, this would already be in the courts. This is no "silver bullet". Would not know where to point a "silver bullet".


LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL SECURITY LLC will be able to retain the "small business" status for the next 5 years. LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL SECURITY LLC will be able to compete as a small business. DoE will meet their small business quotas. With the Consent Order in place, the sanction prohibiting UC as a prime contractor for Los Alamos National Labs is circumvented with UC as a subcontractor. UC gets to keep the pension funds, UC gives away the "employee paper points". The United States government pension plan operated by the United States government (actually corporations owned and operated by the United States government for vesting pension funds in stock for profit) increases their stock value in the top 10 contractors. Grumpy folks not with the program and not team players are removed. The partners are able to move risky business behind the 'front' and away from FOIA access. This is an excellent position for the research community that transfers into LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL SECURITY LLC. Research grants set aside for small business become accessible. The list of advantages is immense. But, it is pyramid scheme, based on a concept that five of the top ten contractors can get together as a partnership and self represent them as a small business. That era ended in 2005. They slipped through the loophole.


Or did they? There is a slight glitch in the timing when the RFP was delayed. Is LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL SECURITY LLC a small business or a partnership of several large businesses? Can a partnership of several large businesses represent itself as a small business?

LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL SECURITY LLC is a small business. Project Managers and Group Leaders need to understand the shift and start using the shift to their advantage. Innovation, creativity, and research will flourish. But, if your[sic] stogie[sic] and don't get with the program and understand the principles of being a small business for profit, the exit doors are wide open.


Could you spell out the significance of this, please?


The chance to start over, to be young again, and have financial backing beyond comprehension with advantages never dreamed before comes with the struggles of being young again.


Could you spell out the significance of this, please?


Regards the pension funds, they are being manipulated across the United States in the largest money grab since the turn of the century. There is no safety net. All it takes is two company buyouts and funds are gone forever, another loophole for another day.

The following can be verified at: http://www.bpn.gov/ccrinq/scripts/search.asp.
In the Legal Business Name or DBA: type LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL SECURITY LLC
Note: LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL SECURITY LLC: 21 - Small Business
LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL SECURITY LLC has no record of doing business with the government. DoE has a requirement to provide a percentage of contracts to small business. In one stroke of the pen, DOE has fulfilled the SBA requirement for many years. Given the opportunity to go with a large business or a small business, there never was a contest. The Final Consent Order, once finally signed, effectively sanction the University of California from doing business as a prime contractor at Los Alamos. DoE had no choice except to enter into a competition. Artfully created and legal, other large DoD and DoE contractors compete routinely against small business by creating these "fronts". All above board, except, You need to look at the articles of incorporation in Delaware (and their special laws).
Is LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL SECURITY LLC a small business or a partnership of several large businesses? Can a partnership of several large businesses represent itself as a small business? If LOS ALAMOS NATIONAL SECURITY LLC misrepresented their small business certification... Their proposal and subsequent contact award is Null and Void. Lockheed would be the last to raise this question, they have done the same in the past and will in the future. Underlying question: Lockheed and Texas could have created an LLC front specified as a small business. The[y] knew they were competing against a 'small business'.

Comments:
I'm still confused. Does this mean that LANS, a $2B/year business is claiming to be a small business? Please explain.
 
Google "business incorporation delaware" and check out some of the "hawks".
 
Where did the other comments go?
