The award was conferred on June 25, and full operational control for work at the lab, located in Albany, Oregon, Morgantown, West Virginia and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, will be assumed this 31 December, when the current contract held by AECOM expires.

The RSS contract comprises personnel, facilities, equipment, materials, supplies, and services in support of the national lab. The National Energy Technology Lab plays a role in protecting the environment and enhancing the nation’s energy independence as it performs basic and applied energy research as well as technology development for coal, natural gas and oil to provide clean, reliable and affordable energy.

Battelle’s role, as a major subcontractor to Leidos, includes membership on the Leidos Research Support Team (LRST) leadership team for the RSS program, providing on-site staff for logistical and research support, business development, financial management and research.

Battelle’s Environment and Infrastructure business line vice president and general manager Mike Janus said: “This is exciting for our organization. It allows us to continue to do important energy research and further support the Department of Energy.”

The single-award, cost-plus-award-fee contract has a three-year base period of performance with 2 two-year option periods and a final three-year option period. The potential 10-year contract has a total dollar value of $364.7m.
