Supplied by a reader. These do not include, of course, the budget shortfall caused by the $79 million annual award fee, the additional $55 million annual GRT payments to the state, and the $41 million LANS-approved KSL "slush fund" (this year's figure, LANS has not announced what next year's KSL bonus will be).
Managers on the top tier have tripled since LANS came in. On the
second tier there are four times the amount of managers. On page
7 of the Mercer Human Resource Report it states that LANS
Managers earn 130% above the market value than any one else in

LANS is anxious for a RIF because they over employed their own
people that have been displaced from other locations. They're
hiding behind the budget crises because Congress does not realize
the amount of key personnel brought in since last June 2006.
LANS new hires impacted the budget with their salaries,
relocation costs, expedited security clearances, etc.
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)
The current budget can not sustain this level of new hires with
their salaries, relocation costs, security clearances, etc.
They are staying at LANL at a minimum of one year. Several
managers including Doris Heim, Mallory, etc. are leaving in
Expedited Security Clearances:
The 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.
Qualifications are questionable:
They're bumping existing employees for these management jobs,
paying travel expenses, being paid above market and don’t have
the educational background.
Brett Knapp, Principal Associate Director double insurance
How many key personnel managers are getting double insurance
coverage? Which means paying for their family out of state and
for the manager in state?
It's not the drug use question that was bothering people so much
as it was that they were also subject to questions about their
sex life, finances, and politics. I believe that religion was
left out, though not many people have anything to hide in that dept.
