New Mexico, Texas schools on team competing for lab contract

New Mexico and Texas universities are members of a team competing for a federal contract to manage Sandia National Laboratories.

The University of New Mexico announced Tuesday that a team led by Chicago-based Boeing Co. and Battelle, a Columbus, Ohio-based nonprofit, includes the New Mexico school as well as Texas A&M University and the University of Texas System.

The University of New Mexico says more than 2,400 of its graduates are employed by Sandia, a federally-funded research and development center based in Albuquerque.

Other companies interested in the contract include the current operator, Lockheed Martin.
