Cincinnati – The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) awarded two fixed price unit rate Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) multiple-award contracts for the permanent disposal of Low-Level Waste (LLW) and Mixed-Low Level Waste (MLLW) today to EnergySolutions, LLC and Waste Control Specialists, LLC. The goal of these contracts is to establish a vehicle that allows DOE sites to place timely, competitive and cost-effective task orders for the permanent disposal of:
- Class A, B, and C LLW and MLLW
- 11e(2) byproduct material
- Technology Enhanced Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (TENORM)
- Certain Sealed sources.
Task orders placed under this ID/IQ contract may be for the disposal of multiple waste types. EnergySolutions, LLC and Waste Control Specialists, LLC will fairly compete for future ID/IQ task orders which will have fixed price unit rates with economic price adjustments (EPA) for appropriate taxes and fees.
The waste material to be disposed under these ID/IQ contracts originates from DOE facilities or is derived from DOE clean-up and remediation activities.
The mission of the DOE Environmental Management program is the safe cleanup of the environmental legacy resulting from five decades of nuclear weapons development and Government-sponsored nuclear energy research.
