Sustainable PNNL - Balancing social, environmental, and economic needs for a more sustainable future

Stakeholder Engagement



Primary Feedback Mechanisms

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), operated by Battelle for the Department of Energy (DOE), is one of the 10 DOE national laboratories. DOE reviews Battelle’s management of PNNL every trimester against the Performance Evaluation and Measurement Plan (PEMP) with PNNL senior management.

PNNL and the Pacific Northwest Site Office (PNSO) counterparts hold routine meetings to discuss performance and emerging issues. Performance data containing performance information from both research and operations are shared with the PNSO. DOE provides an annual written assessment of PNNL's performance against the PEMP goals.

Key Topics and Concerns

In 2018, Battelle had a stellar year as the manager of the DOE national laboratory. PNNL was commended for the quality of our science and technology, the depth of our thought leadership and programmatic impact, and the efficiency and effectiveness of our management and operations.

The evaluation also called out areas where improvement is needed. FY 2019 PEMP notable outcomes were established to address focus areas for improvement.
