The U.S. Department of Energy has approved a five-year extension of UT-Battelle’s contract to manage and operate Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
The five-year extension took effect Wednesday, April 1, ORNL said in a response to questions.
The value of the extension wasn’t immediately available.
The contract requires UT-Battelle to manage and operate ORNL safely, efficiently, and effectively to fulfill DOE missions. Each year, DOE sets performance expectations related to specific operational and management goals, ORNL said.
It’s the fourth time that UT-Battelle’s contract has been extended for five years since DOE selected UT-Battelle to manage and operate ORNL in 2000.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
