NASA awards environmental compliance, operations contract

NASA has selected Navarro Research and Engineering Inc. of Oak Ridge, Tenn., to provide environmental compliance and restoration services at the agency’s White Sands Test Facility in Las Cruces, N.M.

The White Sands Test Facility Environmental Compliance and Operations (ECO) contract calls for a two-year base period beginning June 1 and extending through May 31, 2015. One-year options are available during the following three years. The ECO contract is an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract with cost-plus-fixed-fee and fixed-price task orders. Based on variable funding and work requirements, the entire maximum potential value of the contract including all options is $80 million.

The ECO contract is essential to continue remediation activities associated with a large contaminated groundwater plume and multiple hazardous and solid waste management units.

Navarro’s work includes hazardous waste management and operating permit compliance; groundwater treatment projects, sampling and analyses; wastewater discharge plan oversight; 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.
