Central Shops at Brookhaven National Laboratory
Brookhaven National Laboratory's (Brookhaven) Central Shops Division (Central Shops) provides support services for research and development programs and user facilities. The Department requires its management and operating contractors to evaluate, by performing a make-or-buy analysis, whether their services could be obtained at a lower cost by outsourcing to commercial entities. The objective of the audit was to determine whether Brookhaven prepared a make-or-buy analysis for its Central Shops.
