DOE Issues Request for Information for Potential WIPP Transportation Services Procurement

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Environmental Management Consolidated Business Center (EMCBC) has issued a Sources Sought/Request for Information (RFI) seeking interested parties with specialized capabilities for the Environmental Management (EM) Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (“WIPP”) Transportation Services procurement. The RFI is being used for market research of available capabilities.

The primary purpose of the contract is the safe transport of contact-handled (CH) and remote-handled (RH) transuranic (TRU) wastes and mixed hazardous constituents, including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and asbestos, between various DOE sites across the country and other defense-related TRU waste generator sites to the WIPP site, near Carlsbad, New Mexico.

DOE is seeking feedback from interested parties with the specialized capabilities necessary to meet the requirements of the elements of scope for the WIPP Transportation Services procurement and to further determine whether the work or a portion of the work could be set-aside for small and/or disadvantaged businesses. The anticipated type of contract, period of performance, amount of funding, or set aside possibilities have not been determined.

This Sources Sought/RFI is for market research purposes only and no proposals are being sought. The announcement is posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website at: and on the procurement website at:
