Idaho Falls, ID- The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Environmental Management (EM) today announced it is extending its contract for the Idaho Cleanup Project at the Idaho Site for a period of 6 months. The contract period for the current contractor, CH2M-WG Idaho, LLC, had been scheduled to expire on September 30, 2015. 

Today’s contract extension, valued at approximately $114 million, is intended to accommodate DOE’s competitive procurement process for the new ICP core contract. This action will allow for award of the new ICP Core contract and transition to the new contract to occur without interruptions of ongoing environmental cleanup activities.

This extension will help ensure that the government receives the highest return on investment for its environmental restoration work. Since 2005, CH2M-WG Idaho, LLC (CWI) has been able to operate a highly successful cleanup program in Idaho, completing nearly every project ahead of schedule and under budget, saving the tax payer millions of dollars

Under the contract extension CWI will be responsible for:   

  • Treatment and disposal of radioactive waste
  • Retrieval, disposal and other remediation related to buried waste 
  • Safe management of spent nuclear fuel
  • Disposition of nuclear materials
  • Environmental remediation activities
  • Sodium bearing waste processing activities

The Idaho Cleanup Project contract was awarded to CWI in March, 2005.
