Texas drops out of Los Alamos raceTweet
January 13, 2005
According to the student-run watchdog group UT Watch, the University of Texas System (by the way, congrats on winning the Rose Bowl) will announce it will NOT be bidding for management of Los Alamos National Laboratory in the Dallas Morning News tomorrow. The embattled lab has been beset by security and management problems, of which POGO has been highly critical. POGO also called on the Energy Department to open the Lab up to competition for its management contract for the first time since the Lab's inception over 60 years ago. With UT out of the race, will the University of California (LANL's current long-standing manager) face serious competition at all?
