Secrets And Fines
Remember the story last summer about the $3 million fine recommended by the Department of Energy against the University of California, the contractor that ran Los Alamos? The proposed fine followed the discovery by investigators of more than 1,000 pages of classified documents and "several computer storage devices in a trailer" occupied by an employee of a subcontractor who once worked as an archivist at the lab.
Well, now the university has less than 30 days to pay up or fight the recommendation. Last week, the department's National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) "issued a final notice of violation today to the University of California for violations of the department's classified information security requirements during the university's tenure as the management and operating contractor of the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico."
Is that fine too much or too little for alleged slapdash handling of nuclear secrets by a contractor?
