LOS ALAMOS, N.M., Sept. 23, 2013—Los Alamos National Laboratory has awarded master task order agreements to three small businesses for environmental support services work worth up to $400 million within a five-year period.
The businesses were selected based on a technical proficiency and lowest price basis. The companies—Terranear PMC, Navarro Research and Engineering, Inc. and Portage, Inc.—were chosen from 11 prospective bidders. Task orders under this agreement will be awarded based on available funding.
“In order to achieve our environmental goals, we partner with businesses that are qualified, efficient and cost effective,” said Pete Maggiore, assistant manager for the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Los Alamos Field Office Environmental Projects Office. “The companies selected for this agreement demonstrate those capabilities.”
Environmental support services work includes sampling, remediation and preparing reports for regulatory submittal.
“Partnering with small businesses with this level of technical expertise is crucial to maintaining our continuous commitment to the environment and the public,” said Jeff Mousseau, associate director for Environmental Programs at the Laboratory.
This is the fifth master task order agreement the Laboratory has issued in the past two years to support environmental cleanup efforts.
Los Alamos National Laboratory, a multidisciplinary research institution engaged in strategic science on behalf of national security, is operated by Los Alamos National Security, LLC, a team composed of Bechtel National, the University of California, The Babcock & Wilcox Company, and URS for the Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration.
Los Alamos enhances national security by ensuring the safety and reliability of the U.S. nuclear stockpile, developing technologies to reduce threats from weapons of mass destruction, and solving problems related to energy, environment, infrastructure, health, and global security concerns.
