The Santa Fe New Mexican reports new lab Director Thom Mason said in a statement, "We are committed to partnering with the National Nuclear Security Administration as an integral part of the National Security Enterprise."

Mason, a physicist with a long tenure overseeing Department of Energy nuclear facilities, also serves as president of Triad National Security LLC, a new collective led by the Battelle Memorial Institute, the Texas A&M University System and the University of California.

Triad was created solely to manage and operate the lab for the National Nuclear Security Administration.

The new organization replaces Los Alamos National Security LLC. Under LANS, the lab racked up several security breaches, costly accidents and injuries to employees.
