Lab-Wide Private Event

Co-mingling of public and private events within the TCS Conference Center facilities is prohibited.

A lab-wide private event is an event that typically is hosted by Argonne (non-TCS) personnel and presents additional limitations on gate and entrance access. Like the private event (see private event definition item 2 above), invitations are issued, and/or attendance is restricted (such as a conference, seminar, workshop, or meeting). The attendees will have access to other laboratory buildings, which may include the Building 240 office spaces and/or the Argonne Guest House. An example is the Health Fair.Access for foreign nationals must adhere to the guidelines set forth by DOE Order 142.3A. Any foreign national doing business at Argonne National Laboratory, or having access to information, equipment, and/or technology that is not publicly available, must be entered into Argonne’s FAVOR system by the host or designee. Failure to do so may delay the visitor’s access to the TCS building. The host or designee will also enter all required visitor information into the gate pass system. In all cases, hosts are responsible for ensuring that site access requirements are met and for the actions of their visitors.

An Argonne cost code may be required if additional charges for services or equipment are required.

Like a private event:

  • The vehicle gate entrance (see A map above) into the TCS public parking area will be secured.
  • The pedestrian/vehicle border gates (see B and C map above) between the public and private parking areas will be open.
  • The main entrance doors for the TCS Conference Center will be unlocked (see D on map above).
  • The entrance doors between the TCS Conference Center and the TCS office areas (the revolving and handicap doors) (see E on map above) will be unlocked.
