Agency Denies Bidder's Protest on Nuclear-Site Management

February 28, 2014

Congressional auditors on Thursday denied a protest filed by the losing bidder for a big contract to manage two of the country's key nuclear-arms sites.

The denial by the U.S. Government Accountability Office of the third protest submitted by Nuclear Production Partners, a consortium headed by Babcock & Wilcox, means the management transition at the Y-12 and Pantex nuclear facilities could soon be restarted, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported. Consolidated Nuclear Security, a group led by Bechtel, in January 2013 won the $22 billion contract to manage the two weapons-complex sites.

The Pantex nuclear-weapons assembly and disassembly facility is located in Amarillo, Texas, and the Y-12 National Security Complex, which produces highly enriched uranium, is in Oak Ridge, Tenn.

 

The National Nuclear Security Administration, which oversees the U.S. nuclear-weapons complex, said it plans to restart the transition process at Y-12 and Pantex "as soon as possible."

However, there is a chance that the Babcock & Wilcox-led group could still file a challenge in the U.S. Federal Claims Court, the newspaper reported.
