EM Hosts Second Contract Performance and Management Workshop in 2012

August 29, 2012 - 12:00pm


WASHINGTON, D.C. – EM hosted its second Environmental Management Contract Performance and Management Workshop at DOE headquarters today.

The goal of the workshop was to identify opportunities related to EM’s goal to improve project, budget and contract management with the objective of delivering results on time, within cost and with world-class technical competencies. Participants in the workshop laid out steps to successfully implement opportunities identified to improve contract management at the first EM contract performance and management workshop held in February.

In addition to DOE senior leadership, participants included corporate representatives from all EM large- and small-business prime contract cleanup and construction contractors.

“Today's workshop with the corporate leadership was another great example of effective partnering between EM and its contractor counterparts,” Senior Advisor for Environmental Management David Huizenga said. "This productive partnership results in the best ideas that move us forward in our mission to safely clean up from the Cold War on time and within costs, thereby saving taxpayers money.”

At the Feb. 15 workshop, a number of proposed recommendations were formulated. Participants in today’s workshop laid out a path to achieve those recommendations and benefit taxpayers, and identified several additional actions.
