Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory - Driving Reliability & Confidence for Management Reserve with Deltek Acumen Risk
The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is responsible for ensuring the safety, security, and reliability of the nation’s nuclear deterrent. Yet, its mission is broader than stockpile stewardship, as dangers ranging from nuclear proliferation and terrorism to energy shortages and climate change threaten our nation’s security and global stability. LLNL is known as the “new ideas” laboratory – aspiring to intellectual leadership, originality, and audacity to support an environment that encourages improved operations and new, better ways of doing business. This includes new ways of preparing federal program proposals in a matter that drives increased confidence and reliability in both the schedule and cost estimates.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory was tasked with managing a $1B+ life extension program for a major weapon system, but it had not led a project of this scope for over a decade, and the planning tools used to generate previous cost estimates were not commensurate with modern customer expectations.
