Hunt Valley, Maryland (30 October 2018)—EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., PBC (EA), a leading provider of interdisciplinary environmental services, announced today that its joint venture, EA-Amec Foster Wheeler-1 JV, with Wood (previously Amec Foster Wheeler) was awarded a Small Business Environmental Remedial Action Multiple Award Contract by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Atlantic. The estimated dollar value is $240 million, including the base period (1 year) and 4 option years, which is to be shared among the pool of four Small Business contract holders.
Under this indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract, the EA-Amec Foster Wheeler-1 JV will compete for task orders to perform remedial actions at environmentally contaminated sites, applying a wide range of traditional and innovative methods. Work under this contract will be performed primarily in support of the remediation of sites contaminated with hazardous substances in accordance with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), in Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming, the areas of the Caribbean, Central America, and Puerto Rico. Work could also include Base Realignment and Closure Program and Non-CERCLA sites throughout NAVFAC Atlantic’s area of responsibility (AOR). Although principal sites are identified for the contract, the EA Amec Foster Wheeler-1 JV may be required to perform at any Naval or Marine Corps activity in the NAVFAC Atlantic AOR, including work anywhere outside of NAVFAC Atlantic’s AOR, as required by the Government.
“This award was predicated by the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA’s) creation of an All Small Mentor-Protege Program in 2016—the aim of which is to help small businesses succeed in the federal marketplace—and that is certainly what has happened here,” stated Fritz Meyer, P.E., EA Executive Vice President and Director of Client Programs. “EA’s extensive remediation capabilities, combined with Wood’s wide-ranging experience with the Navy and its thorough knowledge of the Navy’s remediation requirements, preferences, and project sites, were key to this success and we look forward to further opportunities and growth as a result of our partnership. This award is a big win for all the stakeholders—EA, Wood, SBA, and the Navy.”
The EA-Amec Foster Wheeler-1 JV was selected for this contract as a small business under North American Industry Classification System Code 562910, Environmental Remediation Services, with a small business size standard of less than 750 employees.
