A final note of congratulations before we all take some much needed and deserved rest during this 2021 holiday season. Today, the Department of Energy publicly announced a summary of the results of its annual evaluation of the performance of the national laboratories. For us, this is the best set of grades the Lab has ever received, with an ‘A-’ or above in all eight categories, including an ‘A’ in the Mission Accomplishment category. You can learn more about the assessment process and see all of the grades here.
This success, of course, is due to the hard work and commitment on the part of everyone at Berkeley Lab who cares for the people, research, and resources that make the Lab’s mission possible, a responsibility we call stewardship. In delivering its evaluation, the Office of Science leadership also expressed great confidence in our Laboratory and recognized the exceedingly difficult circumstances under which we have operated this year.
No matter what your role is in performing and enabling our mission, we want to thank you for all that you do to ensure that we are successful, and for your commitment to our stewardship values: service, team science, innovation, trust, and respect. It is a privilege to lead this Lab.
