Albuquerque PostcardAlbuquerque Operations Office

Albuquerque Operations Office is an DOE facility fro August 13, 1942 to the present so workers are eligible to file both Part B and Part E claims.

The Albuquerque Operations Office is the major defense program field organization in the Department of Energy. Although its roots can be traced to the Manhattan Engineer District's efforts to provide the nation with a nuclear weapons capability, the Albuquerque Operations Office did not officially come into existence as a civilian organization until the establishment of the Atomic Energy Commission in 1946. Originating during the war years as the Los Alamos "Z" division - the engineering branch of the project. After the establishment of the AEC, it was called the Santa Fe Operations Office. The Office moved to Albuquerque in 1951 and in 1956, became the Albuquerque Operations Office. Today, in managing a national program, Albuquerque's primary mission continues to be stewardship and maintenance of the nation's nuclear weapons stockpile.

The office located at Kirtland Air Force Base which is south of Albuquerque.
