DOE Issues Request for Proposals for Elemental Mercury Long-Term Management and Storage


The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a Request for Proposals for the Elemental Mercury Long-Term Management and Storage procurement. This is a new contract effort to acquire the services of a contractor to establish a designated Storage Facility with the capability for the long-term management and storage of domestic elemental mercury waste to meet the requirements of the Mercury Export Ban Act of 2008 (MEBA), Public Law 110-414, as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, Pub. L. 114-182. MEBA requires a DOE ownership or lease-hold interest in a storage facility, and the technical, management, and administrative services of a Contractor to perform all tasks necessary to ensure the safe and compliant long-term management and storage of elemental mercury waste as contemplated by MEBA. The selected Contractor is expected to provide a lease-hold interest for the storage of elemental mercury waste from multiple domestic sources.

The place of performance shall be the selected Offeror’s proposed storage facility to be designated as the Storage Facility under the ensuing contract. The Storage Facility must be able to manage and store 1,280 metric tons of elemental mercury. The Storage Facility shall comply with state hazardous waste facility permitting requirements. Further, any facility utilized for the long-term storage of elemental mercury shall comply with applicable procedures, standards and criteria and requirements of the Solid Waste Disposal Act [42 U.S.C. 6901 et seq.], including the requirements of subtitle C of that Act [42 U.S.C. 6921 et seq.], except that elemental mercury that DOE is storing on a long-term basis shall not be subject to the storage prohibition of section 3004(j) of the Solid Waste Disposal Act (42 U.S.C. 6924(j)).

This procurement will be conducted using full and open competition procedures. DOE anticipates a hybrid Firm-Fixed Price and Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) performance-based contract type with the capability to issue Firm-Fixed Price task orders. The total maximum period of performance includes a base period of one (1) year and four 1-year option periods for a period of up to five (5) years.

A dedicated webpage has been established for this procurement. All news/announcements, documents (including the Final RFP), questions/answers, and related links will be posted to the following webpage: https://www.emcbc.doe.gov/seb/MercuryStorage. The RFP will also be posted to the Fedconnect website and the SAM.gov website.
