Five sessions on federal environmental cleanup contracting have been scheduled for the 45th Waste Management Symposia from March 3 through 7 in Phoenix.
Business sessions on the agenda are:
- A Monday, March 4, session on small business contracting to provide an overview of programs within the Department of Energy’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization.
- A Tuesday, March 5, quarterly business forum for the DOE Office of Environmental Management will feature a status review of every major cleanup procurement. While there is no separate fee to attend, separate registration is required by contacting Mary Wilson by Feb. 27 at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registrants should provide their name, title, and company name.
- A March 5 session on small business opportunities within DOE and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will focus on both the weapons complex and the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP). Panelists from government and prime contractors will discuss opportunities for small and disadvantaged firms.
- A Wednesday, March 6, session will examine the end-state contracting model at DOE, an approach designed to give the agency more flexibility to speed remediation and ultimate site closure.
- A March 6 session will address DOE’s major procurement plans and strategy, which includes perspectives from the Energy Communities Alliance (ECA), Energy Facility Contractors Group (EFCOG), and the Energy Technology and Environmental Business Association (ETEBA).
The Waste Management Symposia, an international conference on radioactive waste management and related topics, is scheduled at the Phoenix Convention Center.
