WEST VALLEY, N.Y.EM’s West Valley Demonstration Project Site cleanup contractor recently earned nearly $323,000 of an available award fee of about $467,000 for its performance during an evaluation period of March 2019 through August 2019.

EM releases information relating to contractor fee payments — earned by completing the work called for in the contracts — to further transparency in its cleanup program.

The contractor received "very good" ratings for safety, health, and quality management, and business administration; and "good" ratings for project management, and environmental and regulatory compliance.

Noteworthy achievements by CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley (CHBWV) during that period include:

  • Continuous business administration support, including a commitment to the local community, timely public communications, contract deliverables, and use of DOE procurement tools.
  • Good planning and partnering associated with infrastructure improvements, ancillary structure disposition, and removal of other facilities.
  • Surpassing 100,000 work hours without a lost-time accident or illness, and demonstrating a positive emphasis on safety improvements, quality assurance, emergency management, and security.
  • Continued partnering with DOE on radiological controls.

CHBWV's notable accomplishments in performance were offset by noted needs for improvement in work planning and control; estimation of waste volumes; and communications between organizational units.
