DOE Begins Acquisition Planning

DOE Begins Acquisition Planning for Operation of the Hanford Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant (WTP) Direct Feed Low-Activity Waste Facilities

Cincinnati – Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a Request for Information (RFI)/Sources Sought notice for operation of the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant (WTP) Direct Feed Low-Activity Waste (DFLAW) facilities at the Hanford site in Washington State.

The DOE Office of Environmental Management is currently in the acquisition planning phase for a new contract to operate WTP DFLAW facilities. This RFI solicits input, via capability statements, from potential offerors with the specialized capabilities necessary to meet all of the major elements of scope for the upcoming competitive procurement for operation of these facilities. 

The WTP DFLAW complex is in the process of startup and commissioning and consists of three primary components: the Low-Activity Waste Facility (LAW), Analytical Laboratory, and infrastructure and supporting systems collectively known as the Balance of Facilities. Operation includes receiving feed from the Tank Closure Contractor; processing the feed through the vitrification process, and transferring the treated material back to the Tank Closure Contractor for disposition.  DOE remains on track to meet the Amended Consent Decree milestone of December 2023 for LAW commissioning.

The capability statements will provide DOE feedback from contractors and other interested parties regarding options for innovative approaches toward performance of the major elements of scope and provide insight into potential contracting alternatives that may maximize production without impacting safety. 

The final contract type, period of performance, amount of funding, and set-aside possibilities will be determined through the acquisition planning process and will be informed by the responses to the RFI.

DOE Issues Final RFP (ICP)

DOE Issues Final RFP for Idaho Cleanup Project Contract

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Environmental Management (EM) issued a Final Request for Proposals for the Idaho Cleanup Project (ICP) procurement at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) site, near Idaho Falls, Idaho, and the Fort Saint Vrain facility near Platteville, Colorado. 
The new ICP contract is anticipated to be an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with an estimated contract ceiling of approximately $6.4 billion over a 10-year ordering period. Work to be performed under the new contract will include:

  • Operations of the Integrated Waste Treatment Unit;
  • Spent nuclear fuel management, including Nuclear Regulatory Commission-licensed for the Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installations (ISFSI) located at the INL site and the Fort Saint Vrain (FSV) ISFSI near Platteville, CO;
  • Transuranic and low-level waste disposition and management;
  • Facility deactivation and decommissioning;
  • Environmental remediation activities; and
  • Facility Infrastructure.

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

A dedicated webpage has been established for the ICP procurement. All news/announcements, documents (including the Draft and Final RFP), questions/answers, and related links will be posted to the following webpage:  https://www.emcbc.doe.gov/SEB/icp/.  The Final RFP will also be posted to the FedConnect website at: http://www.fedconnect.net and https://beta.sam.gov.
