    Contracting Analytical Support

• Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) with several contract full service
  laboratories
• Almost all analytical support is provided by BOA laboratories;
  limited onsite usage
• Initial contract award in FY07 with 4 option years (waste)
     FY10; going into 3rd option year
• Laboratory selection performed and documented on each sample
  request; depend on analytical suite. Factors considered:
     Cost (# samples, analyses, TAT, deliverable requested)
     Past performance (PT results, DOECAP audit results; Audit findings,
      QA/QC issues to questions, and invoicing; technical expertise;
      QA/QC; NRC license; etc.)
     Other issues (sample volume required, NRC license, facility safety
      basis, reporting issues, timeliness of response)
     Special Analytical Needs

• High level Rad samples
• No-Rad Added (NRA) Determination
• Total PCBs and individual Aroclors; RL < 2 ppm
• Isotopes covering range of the Nuclide Chart
• NESHAP requires low minimum detection
  limits
• Unusual matrices (HEPA filters, paint chips,
  etc.)
    Pros And Cons With Current
        Offsite Laboratories
Pros
• Flexible
• Willing to tackle difficult matrices
• Competitive prices
Cons
• Limited NRC license
• Slow billing cycle
• Some instances of slow response; >48 hrs
  concerning questions
  Difficulties with On-site Labs

• Data deliverables (results only); special
  request for detailed reports
• Generally, TAT is 28 days or more
• Cost; variable not fixed
• Limited resources; competing priorities
     Future Analytical Needs

• Monitoring and surveillance activities to
  remain steady over the next few years
• Spallation Neutron Source (SNS)
• Demolition activities (Central Campus)
  – IFDP
  – ARRA (3026; 2000 Complex)
• Campus Revitalization
  – New Construction
           UT-B ORNL
    Waste Management Update
FY09 Topics:
• Legacy Materials Disposition Initiative (LMDI)
• Integrated Facilities Disposition Project (IFDP)
   – ARRA Funding Accelerate Bldg. 3026 and 2000
     Complex D&D
• Newly Generated Waste Transition Completed

   FY09 LMDI Funded Central Campus Projects Overview


Locations of FY09 LMDI Chemical & Legacy Material Cleanout Projects
  Integrated Facilities Disposition
           Project (IFDP)
• D&D Central Campus Hot Cell Facilities and
  Build Replacement Facilities near HFIR.
• Replace ORNL liquid and gaseous waste water
  treatment systems, clear out the old facilities
  and clean up the underlying contaminated
  soils and groundwater.
• Work will ramp up most of the work between
  2010 and 2015 and finish up by 2018.
              Newly Generated Waste (NGW)
                   Transition Planning
• NGW transfer of responsibilities in FY 2009 (from DOE-EM to DOE-SC)
   – Operational Changes
       • Continued relocation of LWS operations to Hazardous Waste
         Management Area (HWMA – 7600 area)
       • Spill response capabilities moved from 3621 to 7666/7668
       • Mixed waste accumulation/storage moved from 7085 to 7654
       • Drummed low-level radioactive waste staging moved from 7075 to
         7654
       • Location of hazardous waste consolidated accumulation/storage area
         changed from 7013 to 7652
       • Last 7013 hazardous waste shipment performed
   – New bulk (boxed) ASA-3 Low-Level Radioactive Waste Staging area
     (7020) in place to replace ASA-2 (7110)
                                                                                ORNL UT-B Waste Generation
