The total estimated value of the contract is up to approximately $904 million over a period of up to 7 years, including option periods. The current 222-S Laboratory contract at Hanford held by Wastren Advantage, Inc., expires on September 20, 2020.

DOE anticipates awarding a contract that includes cost-reimbursement and cost-plus-award-fee contract line items. The Draft RFP provides for a small business set-aside.
