Verification of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's Contract Workers' Eligibility to Work in the U.S.
The Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley) is a research laboratory managed by the Department's Berkeley Site Office (Site Office). Berkeley, operated under contract by the University of California, conducts unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines, employing approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. In addition to its Fiscal Year 2010 budget of approximately $707 million, Berkeley received an additional $104 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). Much of this funding is being used in combination with Department funds to complete infrastructure upgrades through the use of contractors and subcontractors, resulting in temporary workers gaining access to the Berkeley site.
