Los Alamos National Laboratory

Welcome to the National Nuclear Security Administration’s website for the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) M&O Contract Competition.

LANL is a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC). LANL is one of the largest science and technology institutes in the world and it conducts multidisciplinary research in fields such as national security, space exploration, renewable energy, medicine, nanotechnology and supercomputing. LANL's primary mission is its national security responsibilities which include the design, qualification, certification, and assessment of nuclear weapons. LANL is one of three national laboratories charged by Congress to annually report on the state and health of the stockpile to the President of the United States, through the Secretaries of Energy and Defense. LANL also exercises its abilities in nonproliferation and counter-proliferation to interdict the spread of nuclear technology, its capabilities to identify, anticipate, and rapidly respond to emerging threats, and to apply its expertise in energy security solutions. In addition, LANL performs work for the Department of Defense (DoD), Intelligence Community (IC), and Department of Homeland Security (DHS), among others. LANL’s strategy reflects U.S. priorities spanning nuclear security, intelligence, defense, emergency response, nonproliferation, counterterrorism, energy security, emerging threats, and environmental management.
