GUAM – The U.S. Army is seeking multiple contractors for environmental remediation services in Alaska and throughout the Pacific area, including Guam, for contracts totaling as much as $490 million, according to a notice.

“The government is currently contemplating the award of multiple indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contracts on both a fixed price and cost reimbursement basis,” according to the notice. “The period of performance will be 10 years with an estimated program amount of $490 million spread over all the contracts.”

The deadline for responses to the “sources sought” notice, solicitation number W911KB-11-R-0005, has not yet been set, nor has a date for a full solicitation notice. The Army Corps of Engineers said the contracts will be a continuation of ongoing environmental remediation services work, for which the allotted funds have run out.

Work “includes investigations, studies, remedial designs, removal and remedial actions of hazardous, toxic, and radioactive waste contaminated soil and groundwater.”

While most of the work will be based in Alaska, the Army Corps of Engineers says “decisions to place work outside Alaska will be based on a review of contractor’s capability to do this work as well as the contractor’s desire to perform it.” Those areas may include Guam, Hawaii, Japan and Korea.
