The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a Final Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Tank Closure Contract (TCC) at the Hanford Site. DOE invites proposals to perform services to achieve measurable results towards end state 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 ordering period and at the best value to the U.S. taxpayer. The total estimated value of the Master IDIQ contract is up to approximately $13 billion over a 10-year ordering period. The current Tank Operations Contract (TOC) at Hanford is held by Washington River Protection Solutions, LLC and will expire on September 30, 2019.

DOE anticipates the contract will be an Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract under which Firm-Fixed-Price (FFP) and/or Cost Reimbursement (CR) task orders may be issued. The preference under the Contract will be for the issuance of Cost-Plus-Incentive-Fee (CPIF) and FFP task orders. The Final Request for Proposal provides for full and open competition and includes requirements for meaningful work to be performed by small businesses.

The TCC contractor selected will provide services for the transition from the current TOC to the TCC; operations and maintenance of the single-shell and double shell tank farms including volume management and secondary waste treatment facilities; completion of construction and operations and maintenance of equipment necessary to pretreat and feed low-level waste to the Low-Activity Waste vitrification facility; and single-shell tank waste remediation and closure to support the Hanford Site Environmental Cleanup.
