Los Alamos is a premier R&D laboratory seeking to do business with qualified companies offering value and high quality products and services.

Doing Business with Los Alamos National Laboratory

Due to the nature of Los Alamos National Laboratory’s work, doing business may require that vendors meet specific quality, safety and security standards, including ISO and NQ1 Quality Standards and security clearances (depending on the products or services purchased).

Business Opportunities

Business opportunities are where we post competitive procurements normally greater than our competitive threshold, which is currently $250K. The use of competition to obtain the goods and services necessary to operate the Laboratory is essential in ensuring that the Laboratory obtains fair and reasonable prices and is a good steward of public funds.

Small Business Outreach

The Small Business Program Office (SBPO) knows the importance of small business outreach events. The Lab partners with various organizations to support small business development and growth in accordance with the objectives of the Small Business Administration and the Lab's Prime Contract requirements. Small Business outreach events allow the SBPO to meet with small businesses to share forecasted business opportunities, discuss Lab programs, and what capability and capacity small businesses have that would support Lab programmatic requirements. Information is then brought back to the Laboratory and shared with procurement specialists and technical requestors.

In addition, all small business contact information is stored in the Supplier Master Database in order to enable the SBPO staff and/or procurement specialists to find firms by their respective North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes for incorporation into the bidder lists when needed.
