and approved by the USDOE in accordance with the provision of Prime Contract No.
Procurement Division purchases the goods and services needed to operate the
Laboratory. Our staff has a diversity of
backgrounds and a wealth of experience in the purchasing field. We promote
excellence through continuous training and membership in professional groups

We encourage our staff to seek and maintain professional certification
through these organizations.
