Cincinnati – Today, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Environmental Management (EM) issued a Final Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Integrated Tank Disposition Contract (ITDC) to be performed at the Hanford Site in southeastern Washington State.

The Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract will have an estimated value of up to $45 billion over a 10-year ordering period. The contract includes requirements for meaningful work to be performed by small businesses.

Work to be performed under the new contract will include but not be limited to operation of tank farm facilities, including single-shell tank waste retrieval and closure; design, construction, and operation of waste receiving facilities and treatment capabilities; operation of the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant; and core functions such as project management; environment, safety, health and quality; security and emergency services; and business performance requirements.

The contract will replace the Tank Operations Contract currently held by Washington River Protection Solutions and integrates new scope to operate the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant following hot commissioning activities.

EM is using a selection process for this procurement that focuses the evaluation of offers on key personnel, past performance, management approach, and cost to support a qualifications-based selection of the offeror team that represents the best value to the government.

Through the use of the End State Contracting Model, DOE will partner with the contractor after award to openly negotiate task orders that provide the most reduction of risk and EM financial liability and advance the Hanford Site cleanup mission as far as possible during the contract.

A dedicated EM Consolidated Business Center webpage has been established for the ITDC procurement: All news/announcements, documents (including the Final RFP), questions/answers, documents library, and related links will be posted on the webpage. The Final RFP will also be posted to the Fedconnect website at, and
