FOR THE Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) Operations Acquisition
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Environmental Management (EM), is currently in the acquisition planning phase for a potential upcoming procurement(s) to provide services at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) and to implement the DOE’s National Transuranic Waste Program (NTP) among other requirements at the WIPP site. The majority of this work will be conducted at Carlsbad, New Mexico, the WIPP Site located approximately 32 miles from Carlsbad, and at various DOE generator sites. WIPP is a 2,150 feet deep geologic repository for permanent disposal of a specific type of waste that is the byproduct of the nation's nuclear defense program. WIPP is the nation's only repository for the disposal of nuclear waste known as defense-generated transuranic (TRU), waste.
