NASA Awards Environmental Compliance And Operations Contract
HOUSTON -- NASA has selected Navarro Research and Engineering Inc. of Oak Ridge, Tenn., to provide environmental management and services at the agency's White Sands Test Facility in Las Cruces, N.M.

The White Sands Test Facility Environmental Compliance and Operations contract calls for a fixed-price one-year and seven month base period with a potential value of $3.1 million, and four one-year options with a total potential fixed-price value of $6.6 million. Based on variable funding and work requirements, the entire maximum potential value of the contract is $80 million.

Navarro's work includes hazardous waste management and operating permit compliance; management of the large-scale groundwater monitoring program; environmental clean-up projects and field investigations; air permit and emission inventory requirements; drinking water system compliance; petroleum tank system management; National Environmental Policy Act project evaluations; and recycling, waste minimization and pollution prevention.

This is a new contract award (NNJ11HB30C) as a result of Protest B-404880.1, B-404880.2 and the Agency Corrective Action Plan filed with the U.S. Government Accountability Office on May 24. Due to the protest, the period of performance is revised from the original two-year base period. The base period of performance for the contract is now one-year and seven months and is scheduled to begin on Sept. 1 and extend through April 30, 2013. One-year options are available during the following four years. The contract is an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract with cost-plus-fixed-fee and fixed-price task orders. The significant subcontractor on the contract is URS Group Inc. of Oak Ridge.
