The Department of Energy’s Office of Environmental Management has issued a final request for proposals for the Portsmouth/Paducah Project Office (PPPO) technical support services contract. The PPPO manages the department’s cleanup efforts at the two gaseous diffusion plant sites in Ohio and Kentucky.

The contract is primarily a cost-plus-award-fee contract, with indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract line items using fixed-price or cost-reimbursement task orders, as needed. The period of performance is anticipated to be up to five years, including a three-year base period (with a transition period) and two one-year option periods.

The scope: The PPPO technical support services contractor will provide technical and administrative support to assist the DOE with the oversight and management of cleanup and decontamination and decommissioning activities; depleted uranium hexafluoride operations; and all aspects of on-site contractor operations, including general construction activities, On-Site Waste Disposal Facility project–related investigative and construction activities, geotechnical and design documents, and regulatory compliance activities at the Portsmouth and Paducah sites and at PPPO’s offices in Lexington, Ky.

The contractor will also provide various technical engineering support functions, information technology infrastructure and cyber security support, safeguards and security oversight support, and general administrative support for all PPPO sites.

The contract will be conducted as a Small Business Set-Aside Competition for businesses with fewer than 1,000 employees.
