Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP)
Transportation Services Acquisition
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is currently planning a competitive follow-on acquisition to continue services to transport waste to be disposed of at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) near Carlsbad, New Mexico. The acquisition includes the transportation services necessary to support the WIPP, including: transportation of mixed and non-mixed contact handled (CH) and remote handled (RH) transuranic (TRU) waste, asbestos, and polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) contaminated TRU waste from generator sites across the country to the WIPP; transportation of CH TRU and RH-TRU waste between generator sites; transportation of training units or empty shipping packages to training/exercises, public awareness events; establishing a local terminal; and maintaining trailers. Contractor-provided equipment will include tractors and necessary support equipment. DOE will provide the shipping packages and trailers. The new contract resulting from this acquisition will replace two existing fixed-price contracts providing the same services that expire in 2017.
The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for this requirement is 484230, Specialized Freight (except used goods) Trucking, Long-Distance, and the small business size standard is $27.5M in average annual receipts.
