HANFORD TANK CLOSURE CONTRACT
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Environmental Management (EM) is currently in the acquisition planning phase for potential upcoming competitive procurement(s) for the environmental cleanup work at DOE Hanford Site, hereafter referred to as "Tank Closure Contract (TCC)". Established in 1943, the Hanford Site's original mission was to produce plutonium for national defense. Operations to make the raw materials for nuclear weapons continued until the late 1980s. The waste remaining from those operations is a potential threat to human health and the environment including the Columbia River. In 1989, Hanford's mission shifted from production of weapons material to waste management and environmental cleanup. Office of River Protection (ORP) is responsible for safeguarding the nuclear waste stored in Hanford's 177 underground tanks, and to manage the waste safely and responsibly until it can be treated in the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant for final disposition.
