The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is preparing the following document: Supplement Analysis on Two Proposed Shipments of Commercial Spent Nuclear Fuel to Idaho National Laboratory for Research and Development Purposes

DOE proposes to make two shipments of commercial spent nuclear fuel rods totaling 80 to 100 kilograms heavy metal (40 to 50 kilograms heavy metal in each of the two shipments) to Idaho National Laboratory for research and development purposes.

DOE is preparing a Supplement Analysis in accordance with 10 CFR 1021.314(c), to determine whether existing National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documentation should be supplemented, or that no further NEPA documentation is required for this proposed action.

DOE plans to issue a news release announcing the availability of the draft Supplement Analysis for 30-day public review and comment. In addition, DOE will make the draft Supplement Analysis available on this website.

Existing NEPA documents are available at the following web link: http://www.id.energy.gov/insideNEID/PublicInvolvement.htm

If you would like a copy of the draft Supplement Analysis or to be notified when the draft is released for public comment, please contact Document Manager Jack Depperschmidt, U.S. Department of Energy, Idaho Operations Office, 1955 Fremont Avenue, Idaho Falls, Idaho 83415-1222; phone 208-526-5053; email comnfsa@id.doe.gov.

Energy Department Issues Request For Proposal for Nuclear Regulatory Commission Licensed Facilities Procurement

Cincinnati – The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today issued a final Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Licensed Facilities procurement. The NRC Licensed Facilities contract is for managing Spent Nuclear Fuel (SNF) storage facilities and licenses under NRC regulations. The scope includes the management and operation of the Fort Saint Vrain (FSV) Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) facility in Colorado (including security); the management, operation and oversight of the Three Mile Island-2 (TMI-2) ISFSI facility at the Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center (INTEC) in Idaho; and management of the Idaho Spent Fuel Facility (ISFF) license.

The NRC Licensed Facilities procurement is one of the four procurements that resulted from the Idaho Site Office of Environmental Management Post FY 2015 Acquisition Planning.

The NRC Licensed Facilities contract is a hybrid type contract with Firm-Fixed-Price, Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) and Cost-Reimbursable Contract Line Item Numbers (CLINs). Time-and-Materials (T&M) and/or FFP task orders may be issued under the IDIQ CLINs. The estimated dollar value for this procurement is approximately $25 million to $50 million, with a five year period of performance (four year base period and one year option period). This procurement will be a Small Business Set-Aside.

Additional information on the RFP is available at:
https://www.emcbc.doe.gov/SEB/NRC/rfppage.php. DDOE has requested that all proposals be submitted to the designated procurement address(es) no later than April 30, 2015.
