Paul Renard opened the meeting. He said the Los Alamos Historical Document Retrieval and Assessment Project was initiated in response to a petition, signed by Rep. Richardson inviting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to study Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). Later, an official Memorandum of Understand (MOU) was signed.
This study is a records retrieval and assessment that promises a deliverable of a database of relevant records.
The contractor for this study was selected through an open competitive bid won by ChemRisk for this phase of the study. ChemRisk performed similar studies satisfactorily at Rocky Flats and Oak Ridge Reservation and provided the best proposal. The States of Colorado and Tennessee provided very good letters of recommendation.
Details regarding the study were provided by Charles Miller and Tom Widner.
The meeting concluded with public comments and questions.
