CINCINNATI ― The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has issued a Draft Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Los Alamos Legacy Cleanup Contract (LLCC) acquisition.
A contract that primarily includes cost-plus-award-fee contract line items for the purpose of continuing the legacy cleanup mission is anticipated. The Draft RFP provides for full and open competition, and the Draft RFP includes requirements for meaningful work to be performed by small business concerns. The total estimated value of the contract is approximately $1.7B over the prospective ten-year period of performance, including option periods.
The current Environmental Management (EM) contract at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is held by Los Alamos National Security, LLC, and if all options are exercised, the current contract expires on September 30, 2017.
The purpose of the Draft RFP is to solicit input from interested parties to assist DOE in developing a Final RFP for this procurement. DOE invites all interested parties to thoroughly examine the Draft RFP and the accompanying procurement website in their entirety and to submit comments to DOE.
Additionally, a pre-solicitation, site tour, and one-on-one meetings with interested parties will be announced for early June. Registration information will be available via the procurement website
The objectives of the LLCC acquisition include the following: protect, characterize, and monitor the regional aquifer; clean up contaminated media and contaminated legacy waste sites at LANL and surrounding private- and Government-owned lands (formerly LANL), including groundwater and surface water, to levels appropriate for the intended land use; decontamination and decommissioning and demolish inactive, process-contaminated, and non-contaminated facilities that impede the timely execution of environmental restoration activities; retrieve, characterize, and prepare legacy mixed-low level radioactive waste and transuranic waste for shipment off-site (the LANL EM Program manages the disposition of legacy waste generated between 1970 and 1998 and NNSA is responsible for newly generated waste (waste generated after FY1998)); and transfer sites to the landlord organization (NNSA) for long-term surveillance and monitoring as needed, in order to provide necessary safeguards and protection of workers, the public, and the environment, or to subsequently transfer to the County of Los Alamos.
