DOE Extends Portsmouth Infrastructure Support Services Contract

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced that it is extending its contract for Infrastructure Support Services at the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant site for a period of six months. The contract period for the current contractor, Wastren-EnergX Mission Support, LLC (WEMS), had been scheduled to expire on July 25, 2015.

Today’s contract extension, valued at approximately $17.4 million, is intended to accommodate DOE’s current competitive procurement process for a new infrastructure contract. This action will allow selection, contract award and transition to the new contract to occur without interruptions of ongoing services.

Ongoing services currently performed by WEMS that will continue during the six-month contract extension include:

– Surveillance, maintenance and repair of facilities

– Janitorial services

– Grounds maintenance

– Roadway/parking lot maintenance

– Pest control

– Computing, telecommunication, and cyber security

– Fleet management

– Real and personal property management

– Records management and document control

– Safeguards and security

– Environment, safety, health, and quality (ESH&Q) program; and

– Training services

The mission of the Office of Environmental Management is to complete the safe cleanup of the environmental legacy brought about from five decades of nuclear weapons development and government-sponsored nuclear energy research.
