LAS VEGASEM’s Nevada Program recently awarded environmental characterization and remediation contractor Navarro Research and Engineering more than $942,000, or 94 percent, of the available fee for a performance evaluation period from October 2017 through September 2018.

   “Navarro continues to perform well in all areas of the EM-Nevada contract and has been very supportive of cost reduction initiatives,” EM Consolidated Business Center Associate Deputy Director Ken Armstrong said.

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

   Navarro’s key fiscal 2018 accomplishments include dispositioning contaminated soil from the Clean Slate II site, restructuring the Rainier Mesa/Shoshone Mountain independent peer review process to emphasize closure and regulatory compliance, and cost effectively implementing the Radioactive Waste Acceptance Program.

   Navarro earned the fee based on the EM Nevada Program’s evaluation of criteria for award fee and performance incentive fee pools.

   Navarro received excellent ratings for all award fee evaluation criteria including business relations, management of key personnel, cost control, schedule, quality, and health and safety. The associated award fee percentage earned was 92 percent.

   The incentive fee portion included objective performance measures in the areas of program integration, industrial sites, underground test area, soils, and the radioactive waste acceptance program. Navarro earned 96 percent of the available associated incentive fee.

   There were no significant or notable deficiencies identified during the rating period.
