The Management and Operating Contract, Contract No. DE-AC52-06NA25396, between Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS) and the National Nuclear Security Administration began in 2006 and currently runs through September 30, 2018.  The Conformed Prime Contract is a document (prepared by PCM) in which all substantive modifications are incorporated into the text of the Prime Contract through the date indicated in the header. Modifications that merely add or subtract funds from the total dollars obligated to this Prime Contract under the “Obligation of Funds” provision are not incorporated into the Conformed Prime Contract since these dollar changes occur frequently and do not otherwise affect other provisions of the Contract.

The Conformed Prime Contract is considered an unofficial version of the Prime Contract because NNSA has not officially agreed to our incorporation of the text of the modifications into the Prime Contract. Only the Original Prime Contract and the individual modifications are considered official documents.

In accordance with the Prime Contract, LANS is to  provide the personnel, equipment, materials, supplies, and services (except as may be furnished by the Government) and otherwise do all things necessary for, or incident to providing its best efforts to effectively, efficiently and safely manage and operate the Los Alamos National Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA).
