Portsmouth / Paducah Project Office (PPPO) Operations and Site Mission Support (OSMS)

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Environmental Management Consolidated Business Center (EMCBC) is currently drafting a solicitation for the potential contract award for the continued management and operation of uranium hexafluoride (UF6) activities and assumption of site mission support activities at Paducah, Kentucky, and Portsmouth, Ohio. The following activities will be transferred from the Decontamination and Decommissioning (D&D) Contractor at Portsmouth (Fluor - BWXT Portsmouth, LLC) and the Deactivation and Remediation (D&R) Contractor at Paducah (Four Rivers Nuclear Partnership, LLC) to the OSMS Contractor: utilities (water, sewer, and electric); Emergency Management (fire protection, plant shift superintendent, emergency operations center); Physical Security (Protective Force); Uranium Operations at PORTS (cylinder to cylinder transfer, cylinder yard management); and Nuclear Material Control and Accountability. The conversion facilities were designed and constructed to convert DOE's inventory of DUF6 at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant and the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant, to a more stable uranium oxide form for reuse, storage, and/or transportation and disposition. Both facilities have been in operation since 2011. The Contractor shall continue to provide material transfer, chemical conversion, and cylinder surveillance and maintenance (S&M) services for the DOE inventory of DUF6, low-enrichment uranium (LEU) hexafluoride (UF6), normal UF6, and empty and heel cylinders in a safe, compliant, and environmentally acceptable manner.
