LANS Consortium Secures $65M DOE Los Alamos Natl Lab Support Extension

Los Alamos National Security has received a potential six-month, $65 million contract extension from the Energy Department to continue to perform environmental remediation work at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.

The Los Alamos Legacy Cleanup Bridge Contract will run through March 31, 2018, and covers soil and water remediation and solid waste stabilization efforts at the national lab that include decommissioning of nuclear facilities, DOE said Tuesday.

DOE said the contract extension seeks to provide the environmental management office enough time to complete the acquisition process for a long-term cleanup contract and prevent disruption to near-term work at the national lab.

LANS is a joint venture of AECOM’s (NYSE: ACM) URS subsidiary, BechtelBWXT Government Group and the University of California and has managed and operated the national lab since June 2006 through a contract with DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration.

DOE awarded the contract extension two months after NNSA issued a draft request for proposals for the LANL management and operation contract competition.
