CNS: the first three months

Consolidated Nuclear Security, the government’s managing contractor at the Y-12 and Pantex nuclear weapons plants, assumed responsibility for the two plants on July 1, 2014, but it’s not clear whether the first three months are included in the contractor’s first performance evaluation.

The fee letter, which was made public several months ago, indicates that the final three months of Fiscal Year 2014 (July-September) were included, along the entirety of FY 2015 in figuring the total fee of $42.6 million.

However, the performance evaluation report, which was belatedly released on Friday, shows that the performance period being evaluated was Oct. 1, 2016 through Sept. 30, 2015 — FY 2015.

So far, the NNSA has not responded to questions about whether the first three months on the job were included in Consolidated Nuclear Security’s initial evaluation.
