I was sent a document that cites some information regarding LANL
management. I have no way of verifying the information. There supposedly
was a report prepared for LANS, the Mercer Human Resource Report, date
March 3, 2007, entitled Total Compensation Design and ..... prepared for
LANS by Marsh and McLennan Company.
The report claims that top tier managers have tripled since Jun 1, 2006
and claims that LANS managers earn 130% above the market value.
LANS Line Management Structure (total 49) supposedly listed in the report:
Accounting Manager, Assoc Center Dir, Assoc Director, Associate Deputy
Dir, Associate Director, Benefit Plans Manager, Budgeting Group Leader,
Budgeting Manager, Center Director, Center Leader, Chief Info
Officer,Construction Manager, Dep Principal Associate, Dep Program Dir,
Dep Project Dir, Deputy Associate Dir, Deputy Center Dir, Deputy Center
Leader, Deputy Chief Information Officer, Deputy Director, Deputy
Division Ldr, Deputy Group Leader, Deputy Lab Counsel, Deputy Office
Dir, Deputy Office Leader, Deputy Oper Manager, Deputy Proj Director,
Director, Division Leader, Executive Director, Executive Staff Dir,
Facility Ops Manager, Finance/compliance Manager, General Counsel, Group
Leader, Group Leader/fac Mgr, Office Director, Office Leader, Operations
Manager, Principal Assoc Dir, Principal Dep Associate, Program Director,
Program Manager, Project Controls Manager, Project Director, Project
Manager, Property Mgmt Manager, Team Leader, and Technical Director.
The report also supposedly discusses relocation expenses.
Conservative Estimate: Approximately 1,000 Bechtel (BWXT, etc) employees
have come to LANL.
$30,000 (Conservative No.) X 1,000 New Employees = $30 Million Dollars
TSM = $300K X1000 = $300 Million Dollars (Fully burden cost)
Expedited security clearances requested by LANL for incoming LANS
(Bechtel, BWXT, etc) personnel has risen. The price for these types of
clearances is approximately $25K - $35K. Management is bumping existing
employees for these jobs, paying travel expenses, being paid above
market and don’t have the educational background. Supposedly some key
managers are getting double insurance coverage which means paying for
their family out of state and for the manager in state.
