PIKETON, Ohio EM’s Portsmouth Site environmental technical support services contractor, RSI EnTech, scored an “excellent” overall evaluation for its fiscal year 2017 (FY17) performance, earning $429,281, or 97 percent, of the available fee.

   The contractor excelled in administrative support, environmental safety, health, quality assurance, and field support, and provided “very good” program management support, according to a scorecard released by EM’s Portsmouth/Paducah Project Office (PPPO).

   “RSI provided excellent support throughout the fiscal year, met contract requirements, and exceeded almost all of the performance goals and objectives for the period,” noted PPPO Deputy Manager Joel Bradburne, who also serves as PPPO’s site lead at the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant. “They deliver consistent quality support to all program areas, from radiological safety and waste disposition to environmental compliance, to name a few.”

   Each year 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.

   PPPO’s evaluation acknowledged RSI’s 3,000 days without a first-aid or other reportable safety incident, along with its initiation of safety programs like behavior-based safety practices, safety workgroups, and weekly “Toolbox Talks.” PPPO further commended the contractor for flexibility and timeliness in responding to requests for budget information and technical evaluations of contract actions. 

   The scorecard also cited the contractor’s cost performance and its cost- and schedule-savings recommendations provided to PPPO and cleanup contractor Fluor-BWXT.
