The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Environmental Management (EM) is currently in the acquisition planning phase for potential upcoming competitive procurements for legacy cleanup projects at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).
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.
It is DOE-EM’s intent to enter into a separate, non-competitive Los Alamos Legacy Cleanup Completion Project (LCCP) Bridge Contract with Los Alamos National Security (LANS), LLC (the current operating contractor at LANL) in March 2015 to continue activities in support of the legacy cleanup projects for a 12-24 month period, inclusive of options.
The Bridge Contract is an interim action to enable the continuation of the legacy cleanup activities and to allow EM the reasonable time to competitively procure a performance-based, incentive contract for the Los Alamos (LCCP) Post Fiscal Year 2016 requirements.
LANS will begin to transition the remaining work after the award of the competitive contracts to the successor contractors and work on the Bridge Contract will end after the required contract transitions are complete.
DOE EM has issued a Request for Information (RFI) to solicit input from interested parties with the specialized capabilities necessary to meet all or part of the requirements of the elements of scope for the upcoming competitive procurement(s) for legacy cleanup projects at LANL.
Capability statements are sought which provide feedback on options for innovative approaches for the performance of scope elements as well as insight into potential contracting alternatives to achieve the EM goals for the legacy cleanup projects at LANL.
DOE plans to conduct an Industry Day on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 in support of this contracting effort and provide additional updates as they become available on the on the EMCBC website.
Further details are available via Solicitation Number: DE-SOL-0008109. The response deadline is March 30, 2015.
