Award Description: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) provided additional funding to accelerate Tank Operations Contract (TOC) out year work scope into Fiscal Years 2009, 2010, and 2011. The benefits of acceleration are increased reliability and availability of infrastructure and systems to support waste feed delivery to the Waste Treatment Plant and risk reduction for safe operations in Tank Farms. This acceleration has, and will continue to result in, the addition of significant jobs created and increases in the procurement of materials and goods. The specific scope of Recovery Act (RA) work to be performed is identified in TOC Section J, Table J.15 AMERICAN RECOVERY ACT (ARRA) MILESTONES AND PERFORMANCE MEASURES. A summary of the major work deliverables, organized by the Analytical Building Block (ABB) RA Project Number, is as follows: ? RA-1 Tank Farm Infrastructure Upgrades ? AP/SY Farm Ventilation ? Electrical Upgrades (SY) ? Valve Funnel Replacements ? Tank Level Rise Modifications (AP) ? AZ Farm Control System Upgrade ? AP Valve Pit Jumpers ? Other Tank/Farm Upgrades ? Double-Shell Tank (DST) Upgrades / Life Extension ? Single-Shell Tank (SST) Life Extension ? RA-2 Other Infrastructure Upgrades ? Wiped Film Evaporator (pilot scale system testing and support to approach for full-scale deployment) ? Core Sampling System/Truck ? RA-3 Facilities Upgrades ? 242-A Evaporator Upgrades / Life Extension (exhaust system, controls, spares, and corrective maintenance) ? 222-S Analytical Laboratory Instrument Upgrades ? 222-S Life Extension Projects (roof, support facilities, HVAC controls, and other renovations) ? 222-S Upgrades Projects (HVAC, communications, compressed air system and electrical drawings) ? Effluent Treatment Facility Upgrades ? RA-4 Waste Feed Infrastructure Upgrades ? DST Control Systems Update (AN, AP, AW, AY/AZ, SY, cross-site transfer line) ? Exhauster D&D (AW/AN) ? AZ-1 Condensate Line Upgrade ? AW Clean-Out Box Isolation and Removal ? Initiate Mixer Pump Fabrication (design and pump fabrication subcontract) ? Tank Waste Mixing (bench and pilot scale demonstrations of tank waste mixing and sampling systems) ? AW D&D (hydrogen monitoring/gas characterization systems) ? SY-102 D&D (hydrogen monitoring/gas characterization systems) ? RA-5 Waste Feed Transfer Lines Upgrades ? Transfer Lines Upgrades?SL-177/SN-277 and SL-180/SN-280 ? Transfer Lines Upgrades?SN-278/SN-279 and SN-285/SN-286 Scope also includes Program Support for project and construction/commissioning management, engineering program, ESH&Q, industrial hygiene, emergency operations, training, finance, and facility/property management. Project performance metrics and Key Performance Parameters (KPPs) units of measure have been developed and are in place. KPPs being tracked, at a summary level, include: 1) Deactivation and decommissioning (12 of 58 completed); 2) Drawing reconstitution (286 of 2,400 completed); 3) Equipment/instrument upgrades and spares (35 of 431 completed); 4) Facility/structure upgrades (9 of 18 completed); 5) In-farm piping upgrades (0 of 676 lineal feet completed); 6) System demonstrations (0 of 6 completed); and 7) System upgrades (2 of 22 completed). At the end of the reporting period, September 2009, the WRPS RA Project created 200.2 Direct FTE jobs and 434.6 total FTE jobs, including 58.8 Staff Augmentation and 175.6 Subcontract FTE jobs.
Project Description: For this initial quarterly, data is provided for the period 4/9/09 through 9/30/09. Work is statused using a certified Earned Value Management System, project metrics, and Key Performance Parameters (KPPs). By 9/30/09, the RA Project was 12.1 % complete with a favorable cost variance (CV). Work has been performed with no Lost Time Workday Injuries/Recordable Cases or Days Away, Restricted or Transferred Cases. In the initial 45-Day period (April through May), 25 deliverables were completed implementing the processes and procedures necessary to comply with the TOC contract modification requirements, DOE guidance, and to adequately plan the remainder of the RA work scope. A very successful DOE-EM Project Review was conducted using the Recovery Act Readiness Evaluation Process which resulted in no findings. The success of this review precluded two follow-on reviews by DOE-HQ. Field work was initiated (June through September) on all ABBs including 1) RA-01, Tank Farm Infrastructure Upgrades; 2) RA-02, Other Infrastructure Upgrades; 3) RA-03, Facilities Upgrades; 4) RA-04, Waste Feed Infrastructure Upgrades; and 5) RA-05, Waste Feed Transfer Line Upgrades. Work continued in Program Support with a favorable CV. Significant deliverables completed are: 1) Submittal, negotiation and definitization of the cost proposal (certified data); 2) Establishment of the performance measurement baseline and KPPs; 3) Construction completion for removal of out-of-service equipment/facilities (instrument building, generator, HEPA filters and exhauster); 4) Construction completion for 242-A Evaporator compressor replacement; 5) Construction completion for one life extension and one upgrade project for the 222-S Laboratory (stairway replacement and building demolition); 6) Completion of statements of work (SOWs) to procure five priority analytical instruments for the 222-S Laboratory; and 7) Issuance of SOWs for demolition of four ventilation exhausters in two farms.
Jobs Summary: At the end of the reporting period, September 2009, the WRPS RA Project created 200.2 Direct FTE jobs and 434.6 total FTE jobs, including 58.8 Staff Augmentation and 175.6 Subcontract FTE jobs. The September 2009 (end of quarter) FTEs are based on: - Direct and Staff Augmentation FTEs actual hours worked from the site reporting system, divided by the realized hours for the month (195.0 hours for September / 1800.0 hours for Fiscal Year 2009). - Subcontractor FTEs - provided by our Subcontractors on a monthly basis. The 200.2 Direct jobs created below reflect the total number of FTEs that were working as of the end of the reporting period (September 2009). The jobs created are described by the following site Common Occupational Classification System (COCS) breakdown: Carpenters - 0.3 Electricians - 10.1 Painters - 0.6 Plumbers & Pipefitters - 2.0 Chemical Engineers - 8.3 Civil Engineers - 4.1 Electrical Engineers - 2.7 Environmental Engineers - 1.5 Mechanical Engineers - 14.2 Nuclear Engineers - 1.3 Plant Engineers - 14.0 Quality Control Engineers - 5.0 Safety Engineers - 3.0 Other Engineers - 0.8 Construction Engineers - 5.7 Administrative Assistants - 0.6 Office Clerks (General) - 1.4 Secretaries - 2.2 First Line Supervisors - 5.8 Managers & Executives - 20.4 Planners/Schedulers/Estimators - 8.2 Health Physicists - 2.0 Industrial Hygienists - 2.0 Safeguards & Security Specialists - 1.9 Trainers & Instructors - 3.9 Technical Writers & Editors - 0.5 Other Professionals - 7.5 Nuclear Waste Process Operators - 13.8 Chemists - 1.0 Environmental Scientists - 1.0 Other Scientists - 1.3 Drafters - 0.6 Health Physics Technicians - 35.4 Industrial Health/Safety Technicians - 8.3 Instrument & Control Technicians - 1.1 Laboratory Technicians - 7.1 Other Technicians - 0.4 (Total jobs reported: 200)
