The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today issued a Draft Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Los Alamos Legacy Cleanup Contract (LLCC) acquisition.
A contract that primarily includes cost-plus-award-fee contract line items for the purpose of continuing the legacy cleanup mission is anticipated. The Draft RFP provides for full and open competition, and the Draft RFP includes requirements for meaningful work to be performed by small business concerns.
The total estimated value of the contract is approximately $1.7B over the prospective ten-year period of performance, including option periods. The current Environmental Management (EM) contract at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is held by Los Alamos National Security, LLC, and if all options are exercised, the current contract expires on September 30, 2017.
The DOE’s Office of Environmental Management (EM) has completed the acquisition planning phase for the upcoming new procurement for legacy cleanup projects at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), hereafter referred to as “Los Alamos Legacy Cleanup Contract“.
Since its inception in 1943 as part of the Manhattan Project, LANL’s primary mission has been nuclear weapons research and development. The LANL EM Program mission is to safely secure and to achieve cleanup and risk reduction of legacy material, facilities, and waste sites at LANL in support of DOE’s Strategic Plan to safely complete the environmental remediation of legacy and active sites while protecting human health and the environment.
Since October 1, 1988, the programs that characterize and remediate contaminants in the environment, decontaminate and decommission (D&D) process-contaminated facilities, and manage and dispose of legacy transuranic (TRU) waste have been funded by DOE EM.
