NNSA Team Wins Project Management Award

The presentation took place during the 2018 DOE Project Management Workshop held in Arlington, Va. The TWF project at Los Alamos National Laboratory is NNSA's first Hazard Category 2 Nuclear Facility project completed under budget.

The National Nuclear Security Administration project team for the Transuranic Waste Facility, which was completed in September 2017 both $2 million under budget and four months ahead of schedule, recently received the Department of Energy Secretary's Project Management Achievement Award for their work. The presentation took place during the 2018 DOE Project Management Workshop held in Arlington, Va.

The TWF project at Los Alamos National Laboratory is NNSA's first Hazard Category 2 Nuclear Facility project completed under budget. The agency announced the award on April 5.

The TWF facility consists of multiple buildings that will be used for staging newly generated solid transuranic wastes from Los Alamos Lab programs and missions for ultimate disposition at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant. Transuranic waste is waste that has been contaminated with artificially made elements that have an atomic number higher than uranium.

The news release explained that the project team "used an innovative contracting strategy to safely execute this project under budget and ahead of schedule. They used a separate contract line item under the larger Management and Operating contract to incentivize cost and schedule performance." The final total project cost was $97 million.

NNSA reported it is now using this contracting model at other sites.
