LOS ALAMOS, N.M., May 14, 2013—Los Alamos National Laboratory has awarded a master task order agreement in which three small businesses will compete for environmental work worth up to $150 million over five years. The businesses each have offices in northern New Mexico.
The agreement is for technical services for the Laboratory’s Environmental Programs directorate and includes work such as environmental engineering design, regulatory support, risk assessment and reporting.
The companies chosen are Terranear PMC, Navarro Research and Engineering, Inc., and Adelante Consulting, Inc. The agreement is for three years with two additional one-year options. Task orders under this agreement will be competitively bid among the three companies based on available funding.
“Their excellent safety records and technical expertise make these companies valuable partners in providing a high level of environmental service to northern New Mexico,” said Jeff Mousseau, associate director for environmental programs at the Laboratory.
“Having local companies of this high caliber working with us helps to ensure that we complete our environmental mission effectively and efficiently,” said Pete Maggiore, assistant manager for the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Los Alamos Field Office Environmental Projects Office.
The current master task order agreement is the fourth Los Alamos has awarded to support environmental cleanup work in the past two years, with plans to award two more in the coming year.
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.
