Los Alamos – The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Environmental Management Los Alamos Field Office (EM-LA) extended the Los Alamos Legacy Cleanup Bridge Contract by a period of six months today. The period of extension is valued at approximately $65 million. With the extension, the contract will expire on March 31, 2018. The contract was originally set to expire on September 30, 2017.

The Los Alamos Legacy Cleanup Bridge Contract is a Cost-Plus-Award Fee (CPAF) contract that is for the purpose of providing environmental remediation services at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The cleanup work is segmented into two distinct performance baseline summaries (PBS): Solid Waste Stabilization and Soil and Water Remediation (which includes and Deactivation and Decommissioning of Nuclear Facilities).

This extension to the Los Alamos Legacy Cleanup Bridge Contract is intended to allow DOE to: 1. Facilitate the successful accomplishment of the necessary near-term mission critical work scope with the least amount of disruption; and 2.) Provide the Office of Environmental Management with the time necessary to complete the procurement of the performance-based, longer term Los Alamos Legacy Cleanup Contract (LLCC).

Los Alamos National Security LLC (LANS), a large business, is the prime contractor. LANS is a consortium of firms which includes Bechtel, AECOM, BWXT Technologies, and the University of California.

LANL is approximately 36 square miles and subdivided into Technical Areas (TA) with sequential numbering. DOE EM-LA is responsible for the large scale legacy environmental cleanup activities at the LANL which is being performed in multiple Technical Areas.
