Deadline for Performance
Award Forms Is April 7

Berkeley Lab logo

Outstanding Performance Awards (OPAs) recognize and reward an employee’s significant one-time achievement in support of Laboratory objectives. The program is meant to encourage development or achievement in specific areas, such as EH&S, total quality management, technology transfer, cost containment, and affirmative action. OPA nominations are reviewed three times a year, with the next nomination deadline on April 7. HR Centers will collect nominations from their Division or Departments and submit them to the Compensation Department. Supervisors are encouraged to use the OPA program as a motivational tool to reward employees for noteworthy accomplishments. More information about OPAs can be found here, or through HR Centers. Download nomination forms.

Road Closure

Road N next to Buildings 6 and 37 will be closed to traffic (except emergency vehicles) tomorrow through Friday due to construction activities for the Building 6 Southside Expansion project. Traffic to the Building 80 parking lot will be rerouted to Road N1. Parking spaces along Road N1 will be barricaded to allow two-way traffic. Pedestrian traffic will not be allowed through the work area.

Happy Birthday,
City of Berkeley

The City of Berkeley turns 125 years old tomorrow, and to honor the occasion, a big citywide party is planned. Mayor Tom Bates and City Council members invite friends and residents to meet at 4:30 p.m. at Old City Hall on Milvia Street at Allston for a giant community photograph. (Prints will later be made available through the Mayor's office). No signs or placards, but ethnic or group club wear is encouraged. The photo shoot will be followed by refreshments and music inside Old City Hall until 6:30 p.m., when a short program will celebrate Berkeley's older businesses and families, and the official birthday cake will be cut. More events can be found here.

Power Line Testing Begins This Week

The Facilities Electrical Department will be performing 12kV electricity switching, testing of circuit protection and relaying schemes prior to the Lab’s taking service from the Grizzly Substation. Procedures on all lab power loads are scheduled for April 3, 10 and 14. Tests are set for April 16 on lines servicing the 50 Complex, 51 Complex, 54, 55, 55A, 60, 63, 64, 65 Complex, 67B, 67C, 70, 70A, 71 Complex, 88, and 90. The activity should be transparent to the Lab community, and although the possibility of a power interruption always exists, none is anticipated. For questions or additional information, contact Jim Murphy at 4175 or Mahesh Gupta at 5220.
