ABSTRACT
The big items on the U.S. Energy Department's procurement list are contracts to manage and operate its production and laboratory facilities across the United States. The University of California system is Energy's largest contractor, taking up more than 20 percent of the department's total purchases in fiscal 2002. Energy's other high-profile contract expenditures include environmental cleanup projects, such as at the Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site in Colorado. United States Congress granted the Homeland Security Department use of Energy's national laboratories, and the two departments struck an accord making laboratory technologies and research capabilities available to support the war on terrorism.
