The Department of Energy/National Nuclear Security Administration and the Livermore Site Office today posted a draft general workforce restructuring plan for LLNL and is now accepting both public and employee comments.
The plan, consistent with Section 3161 of the National Defense Authorization Act, is required whenever workforce restructuring may occur at a DOE defense nuclear facility. LLNL is the last of the NNSA laboratories and plants to have its plan posted. Both Los Alamos and Sandia posted draft workforce plans earlier this month. Once the public comment period has ended, the draft plan will be finalized. The plan does not address specifics to LLNL, but is designed to generically identify how such a plan might be implemented.
The plan identifies how the Laboratory would mitigate the impact of any potential workforce reductions among contractor employees at the Laboratory as well as on the surrounding community. The plan serves as a guideline tor DOE/NNSA to meet the changing missions and contractor structure at the Laboratory for Fiscal Year 2008 and beyond.
The draft plan is available on the Web at http://www.doeal.gov/WRLLNL/Default.aspx. Public comment on the plan is available through Nov. 5. Comments should be directed to Homer Williamson, Contracting Officer, NNSA Livermore Site Office, P.O. Box 808, L-293, Livermore, CA 94550; e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org; or by fax to (925) 423-7668.
