Jacobs Bags Contract for Idaho Cleanup Project
Jacobs is awarded the Idaho Cleanup Project at the Idaho National Laboratory, as the majority partner in the Idaho Environmental Coalition LLC, which includes members from Jacobs and North Wind Portage Inc. US Department of Energy's Office of Environmental estimates the contract value at USD 6.4 billion, to be awarded over a 10-year period. Jacobs will use technology-driven solutions to reduce the environmental legacy of the Cold War, support high-quality jobs in the region and protect the Snake River Plain Aquifer, a critical element of Idaho's agricultural industry
Idaho Environmental Coalition will deliver the ICP under DOE's End State Contracting Model. The single award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract allows DOE, IEC and project stakeholders to collaborate to define the end states necessary to complete work at ICP.
Jacobs has supported the US Department of Energy's Office of Environmental Management's mission at ICP since 2005. The ICP is focused on reducing risks to workers, the public and the environment and involves the safe environmental cleanup of the INL site, contaminated with legacy wastes generated from the Manhattan Project, government-owned research reactors, spent nuclear fuel reprocessing, laboratory research and defense missions at other DOE sites.
