Energy Chief Names Panel to Review Missions of Nuclear Labs

May 22, 2014

The Energy Department has announced who will sit on a commission to review the missions of the national laboratories, Science reported on Wednesday.

Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz in a Tuesday press release said the nine-member independent panel will be co-chaired by Jared Cohon, a civil engineer and past president of Carnegie Mellon University, and T.J. Glauthier, a former deputy Energy secretary in the Clinton administration.

Congress ordered the establishment of the commission when it approved the fiscal 2014 omnibus spending bill in January. The panel's mandate is to assess whether the national laboratories "are properly aligned with the department's strategic priorities; have clear ... missions that are not unnecessarily redundant and duplicative; have unique capabilities ... to meet current and future energy and national security challenges; [and] are appropriately sized."

 

An initial commission report is due by February 2015. A second assessment thereafter is expected to address the potential for making organizational changes to the lab structure.

There are 17 national laboratories; among them are the three main nuclear weapon laboratories -- Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos and Sandia.
