Last week, the National Nuclear Security Administration published summaries of its annual performance evaluations for the contractors that manage NNSA facilities, including Los Alamos National Lab, Lawrence Livermore National Lab, and Sandia National Labs. The lab contractors received overall ratings of 89%, 94%, and 91%, respectively.

All three received 100% ratings for their goals focused on “advancing science and technology.” Problems flagged during the reviews largely concern nuclear weapons production and warhead life-extension programs.

The full performance evaluation reports are under review by NNSA’s Freedom of Information Act Office, which expects to release them by Feb. 26.
