MCLEAN, Va., May 10 (UPI) -- Low-level radiation contamination resulting from early U.S. atomic weapons programs are to be investigated and remediated by SAIC.
The work will be performed as a prime contractor to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers St. Louis District in an award worth a total of $37 million.
"This contract award represents the continuation of more than 14 years of SAIC support to the USACE St. Louis District," said JT Grumski, Science Applications International Corp. senior vice president and business unit general manager. "Our tremendous depth of experience with the FUSRAP provides the St. Louis District the highest understanding of the current status of all FUSRAP sites, and we look forward to continuing to provide environmental cleanup of residual radiological contamination from historical MED operations."
The Formerly Used Sites Remedial Action Program of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers aims to remove low-level radioactive contamination that occurred as a result of activities in the 1940s and early 1950s of the Manhattan Engineer District and the Atomic Energy Commission.
The contract is a single-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award with a five-year performance base.
Services to be performed under the contract include continued investigation and remediation programs, administrative record and document management, data management, technical and regulatory integration, extent of contamination surveys, confirmation of remedial actions, on-site laboratory environmental monitoring and radiological support.
