The Department of Energy has released a draft request for proposals for a potential 10‐year, $3 billion contract to carry out cleanup work at a nuclear waste remediation site in West Valley, New York.
DOE said Tuesday the indefinite‐delivery/indefinite‐quantity contract is intended to continue deactivation, demolition and soil remediation activities at the West Valley Demonstration Project site.
The winning contractor will deactivate and demolish the remaining near‐grade and below‐grade components, remediate contaminated soils, dispose of legacy waste and perform environmental monitoring and surveillance.
A joint venture between CH2M and BWX Technologies performs waste management efforts at the WVDP site under a contract slated to expire on Feb. 28, 2025.
DOE intends to conduct a pre‐solicitation conference, site tour and one‐on‐one sessions for the WVDP Phase 1B cleanup project in late September.
