Cincinnati -- The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today issued a Draft Request for Proposal for the Central Plateau Cleanup Contract, to perform work to meet specified End States (the successful completion of environmental cleanup activities) to achieve measurable results towards completion of the DOE-Office of Environmental Management mission at the Hanford Site by accomplishing the maximum amount of environmental cleanup within the 10-year period of performance (if the option is exercised) and at the best value to the U.S. taxpayer. The total estimated value of the contract is up to approximately $6.5 billion over a period of up to ten years, including an option period. The current Plateau Remediation Contract at Hanford is held by CH2M HILL Plateau Remediation Company and will expire on September 30, 2019.

DOE anticipates awarding a contract that includes cost-reimbursement, cost-plus-incentive-fee, and indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract line items. The Draft Request for Proposal provides for full and open competition and includes requirements for meaningful work to be performed by small businesses.

The purpose of the Draft Request for Proposal is to solicit input from interested parties to assist DOE in developing a Final Request for Proposal. DOE invites all interested parties to thoroughly examine the Draft Request for Proposal and the accompanying procurement website and to submit comments to DOE.

Additionally, DOE plans to conduct a pre-solicitation conference, including a site tour and one-on-one meetings with interested parties the week of October 15, 2018. Registration information and additional information on the Request for Proposal is available via the procurement website at:
