DOE Awards Savannah River National Laboratory Management and Operating Contract


Cincinnati –Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Environmental Management (EM) awarded the Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) Management and Operating (M&O) contract to Battelle Savannah River Alliance, LLC (BSRA) of Columbus, OH.

The Cost-Plus-Award-Fee contract will include a 5-year base period (inclusive of 120 day transition period) and potential award terms of up to 5 more years, for a total period of up to 10 years. The anticipated contract value is approximately $3.8 billion over the potential 10-year period of performance.

The procurement was competed as a full-and-open competition, and EM received three proposals. The Department determined the BSRA proposal provided the best value to the Government considering Laboratory Vision, Key Personnel, Management and Operations, Past Performance, Transition Plan, and Cost and Fee.

BSRA is a single member LLC, with Battelle Memorial Institute being the sole member. BSRA’s teaming subcontractors include: Clemson University, Georgia Tech Research Corporation, South Carolina State University, University of Georgia Research Foundation, Inc., and University of South Carolina as well as Longenecker & Associates, Inc. and TechSource, Inc. BSRA’s teaming arrangement with regional universities will further DOE’s goal to increase academic involvement in the management of the Laboratory.

This new M&O contract for SRNL is expected to enhance the laboratory’s ability to focus on research and development, increase its flexibility to pursue more diversified projects, and attract talent and the involvement of other research institutions and academia in its projects.

“This M&O contract will position SRNL to maximize its potential as a national laboratory to benefit the Department, the American scientific discovery and innovation ecosystem, the local communities near the lab and the American taxpayer at large,” said DOE Under Secretary for Science Paul Dabbar.

The services will be performed at SRNL at the Savannah River Site (SRS), near Aiken, South Carolina. The SRNL M&O contractor will be responsible for the overall management and operation of SRNL. The multi-program, Federally Funded Research and Development Center work performed under the new contract will include operations and maintenance of SRNL’s nuclear and non-nuclear facilities and DOE mission roles focused in the following areas:

• Environmental Management

• National Security

• Science Discovery

• Energy Security

• Legacy Management

The new contract resulting from this procurement will take over responsibility for the SRNL work scope from the larger SRS M&O contract with Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, LLC (SRNS). Following issuance of a notice to proceed to BSRA, the transition of the management and operation of SRNL to the new contract will commence.

DOE Issues Final RFP

DOE Issues Final Request for Proposal for the Moab Remedial Action Contract


Cincinnati-  The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Environmental Management (EM) is issuing the Final Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Moab Remedial Action Contract (“Moab RAC”). The Moab Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action Project (Moab UMTRA Project) is responsible for remediation of EM’s Moab Site through the Moab RAC.

The new Moab RAC is an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with a cumulative task order ceiling of approximately $614 million. This ceiling includes issuance of a task order performing a maximum of 5 years beyond the end of the 10-year ordering period. The Final RFP is 100% set-aside for small business.

Work to be performed under the contract will include excavation and disposal of all Residual Radioactive Material, completion of disposal cell construction to include final cover, and restoration of the Moab and Crescent Junction Sites. The scope of work also includes the maintenance of facilities, grounds, and railroad structures at the Moab Site and the Crescent Junction disposal cell, necessary to continue relocation of the mill tailings and associated wastes.

The new contract resulting from this acquisition will replace current Moab UMTRA Remedial Action Contract, DE-DT0011049, which expires on September 30, 2021.

EM is pursuing a streamlined selection process of the ESCM for this procurement, which focuses on the most discriminating evaluation elements of key personnel, past performance, management approach, and cost to support a qualifications-based selection of the offer that represents the best value to the government. The streamlined ESCM also shifts focus onto post-award partnering to determine the most appropriate requirements and technical approach to achieve the greatest amount of cleanup progress.
