The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today issued a Request for Information (RFI)/Sources Sought for the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant (GDP) Decontamination and Decommissioning (D&D) Project.

The DOE Office of Environmental Management (EM) is currently in the acquisition planning phase for a potential upcoming procurement to perform completion of the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant (GDP) Life-Cycle Decontamination & Decommissioning (D&D) Project including demolition and disposal of all GDP facilities, process equipment, related process buildings, and other ancillary GDP facilities. The Portsmouth D&D Project also includes remediation of contaminated soils and groundwater, providing infrastructure services to site users, and disposition of uranium material.

The purpose of this RFI is to solicit input via capability statements from interested parties with the specialized capabilities necessary to meet all of the Major Elements of Scope for the upcoming competitive procurement(s) for the Portsmouth GDP D&D requirements. Within these capability statements, DOE is seeking feedback from contractors and other interested parties regarding end state options for innovative and integrated approaches for the optimal performance of the Major Elements of Scope as well as insight into potential contracting alternatives. This market research will assist DOE with identifying interested and capable sources and developing its acquisition strategy. Key market research goals include identifying and minimizing barriers to competition, evaluating small business capabilities, and identifying risks. This contract is intended to align with the current EM end state contract model, however the final contract type, period of performance, amount of funding, and set aside possibilities will be determined through the acquisition planning process and this market research.
