Cincinnati – The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) awarded two indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) multiple-award contracts for the disposal of low-level radioactive waste (LLW) and mixed-low level radioactive waste (MLLW) today to EnergySolutions, LLC of Clive, Utah and Waste Control Specialists LLC of Andrews, Texas.
The goal of these contracts is to establish a vehicle that allows DOE sites to place timely, competitive, and cost-effective task orders for the permanent disposal of:
• Class A, B, and C LLW and MLLW
• 11e(2) byproduct material
• Technology enhanced naturally occurring radioactive material (TENORM)
• Certain sealed sources.
Task orders placed under this ID/IQ contract may be for the disposal of multiple waste types. EnergySolutions, LLC and Waste Control Specialists LLC will fairly compete for future ID/IQ task orders which will have fixed price unit rates with economic price adjustments for appropriate taxes and fees.
The waste to be disposed under these ID/IQ contracts originates from all DOE facilities or is derived from DOE clean-up and remediation activities.
The mission of the DOE Environmental Management program is the safe cleanup of the environmental legacy resulting from five decades of nuclear weapons development and Government-sponsored nuclear energy research.
