Cincinnati – Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) cancelled the solicitation for the Paducah Infrastructure Support Services Contract (PAD Infrastructure 89303319REM000057). DOE has determined that cancelling this solicitation is in the best interest of the Government due to the length of time that has passed since the solicitation was released and proposals were received (approximately three years), a substantially changed economic environment, including but not limited to the effects of COVID-19, and key changes to the Performance Work Statement. 

The Department plans to release information related to the future solicitation for Paducah Infrastructure during the 3rd quarter of FY23. The current contractor, Swift & Staley, Inc., will continue to provide services under its extended contract, set to expire July 31, 2024, or until a new contractor is selected. 

For more than 30 years, EM has remained focused on addressing the environmental legacy of nuclear weapons development and nuclear energy research that helped end World War II, win the Cold War and position the United States as a leader in clean nuclear energy. Collectively, EM is delivering results that are protecting the environment, supporting communities and enabling a concerted focus on safely completing the mission sooner and more efficiently.
