AMARILLO -- The joint management contract for Pantex and the Y-12 facility in Tennessee has been awarded.
Consolidated Nuclear Security, LLC has won the contract that includes a third nuclear facility in South Carolina.
CNS originally won the contract earlier this year but that decision was pulled following concerns by the Government Accountability Office in the process.
Babcok and Wilcox currently manage Pantex and Y-12 and said in a statement they plan to make the transition as transparent as possible.
