DOEThe U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Oak Ridge Office (ORO) has a requirement for dismantlement, decontamination, demolition and remediation of the East Tennessee Technology Park (ETTP) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.The entire site encompasses approximately 5,000 acres of land. The potentially impacted area of ETTP is divided into two zones:

  • Zone 1 – About 1,400 acres outside the main fence. Historically used for light industrial purposes.
  • Zone 2 – Approximately 800 acres inside the main fence area. Historically had a heavy industrial use.

ETTP was originally built as a uranium enrichment facility for defense programs. The majority of the buildings on the site have been inactive since uranium enrichment production ceased in 1985. At the completion of the ETTP cleanup, the site will be available for use as a private-sector industrial park. The anticipated scope of the ETTP Cleanup contract includes overall Decontamination and Decommissioning (D&D) planning and engineering, project management, integration, and execution responsibilities including, but not limited to:

  • Environmental investigation, characterization and remediation
  • Waste management planning and disposition
  • Dismantlement, decontamination, decommissioning and demolition of facilities
  • Remediation of soils and groundwater
  • Surveillance and Maintenance and Environmental Monitoring
  • Management and disposition of Low-Level Waste, Mixed Low-Level Waste, Hazardous and Non-Hazardous Wastes
  • Regulatory document preparation
  • Regulator and stakeholder involvement
  • Infrastructure and General Program Activities
  • The pension and benefit programs for Oak Ridge, Portsmouth and Paducah

In addition to ETTP cleanup and D&D activities, this contract will also include certain Environmental Management operations at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Y-12 National Nuclear Security Complex, hereafter (Y-12 Complex). These operations involve waste treatment and disposal operations, surveillance and maintenance of EM facilities and Environmental Monitoring.

DOE intends to award a Cost-Plus-Award-Fee (CPAF) contract with Performance Based Incentives (PBIs) and Contract Line Item Numbers (CLINs) under North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code 562910 for this acquisition. It is expected that 60% of the work will be subcontracted. The Government intends to evaluate proposals and award a contract without discussions with Offerors [except clarifications described in Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) 15.306(a)]. Therefore, the initial proposal should contain the Offeror’s best terms from a technical and cost standpoint. The Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if the Contracting Officer later determines them necessary.
