WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced the award of a prime contract for the Department's Office of Legacy Management (LM) Support Services work to S.M. Stoller Corporation for surveillance and maintenance and technical support at more than 100 of DOE's legacy sites.  The three-year contract, with one two-year extension option for a total of five years, is valued at approximately $170 million over the life of the contract and is one of the largest 100% small business contracts within DOE.  The contract includes responsibility for legacy sites that have been closed and no longer support the Department's ongoing national security, energy and science missions, including the Rocky Flats and Fernald sites.

"Together, the Department of Energy's Office of Legacy Management and S.M. Stoller will continue to ensure the long-term protection of human health and the environment at over 100 legacy sites across the country," Michael Owen, Director of the Office of Legacy Management, said.  "We look forward to working with our new prime contractor, the S.M. Stoller Corporation, to manage the Department's post-closure surveillance, monitoring, and maintenance responsibilities.

The contract will provide support services for DOE's Office of Legacy Management in the following areas:  long term surveillance and maintenance; land and facility reuse; project and program planning; environmental systems and applications; information technology management; records inquiry and processing; site active and inactive records management; real and personal property management; and community and public involvement.

The mission of the Office of Legacy Management is to manage the Department's post-closure responsibilities and ensure the future protection of human health and the environment.  LM controls and has custody of legacy land, structures, and facilities and is responsible for maintaining them at levels suitable for their long-term use.  In April, LM was designated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as the second high performing organization, or "HPO", in the federal government and the first in the Department of Energy.  An HPO is equivalent to a "most efficient organization" as defined by OMB standards for performance and cost.
