The purpose of this contract is to provide the necessary skilled personnel, facilities, equipment, materials, supplies, and services to support NETL’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) in its implementation of assigned basic, applied, and technology development based energy research and corresponding infrastructure responsibilities. Work will be performed at NETL’s research and development sites located at: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Morgantown, West Virginia; and Albany, Oregon; or at other field locations identified and approved by DOE’s authorized Contracting Officer’s Representative (COR).
The objective of this contract is to support NETL’s Office of Research and Development in its implementation of authorized energy research in a manner that: 1) protects the safety and health of the public, the contractor and its subcontractor’s employees, and DOE personnel; 2) respects and protects the environment; 3) instills public confidence; 4) fortifies and increases the Nation’s engineering, scientific, and educational foundations; 5) effectively supports DOE’s efforts to provide energy security; 6) effectively transfers NETL’s technology to U.S. industry and firms. To achieve these objectives, the contractor shall utilize the best available management, engineering, scientific, and research practices from both the Government and commercial sources. A successful contract will enhance performance of NETL’s current mission, provide for a robust technology transfer process, and extend NETL research capabilities to better serve future mission needs.
NETL’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) is responsible for planning and implementation of on-site research programs and stewardship of all associated project-specific and general laboratory infrastructure. NETL ORD research is technically organized into Focus Areas, and conducted within operating Divisions. The research and associated infrastructure is managed and conducted by Federal employees with support from Contractor staff. NETL is the lead research and development laboratory under the Office of Fossil Energy (FE) within DOE, and its activities are designed to accelerate development of energy related technologies to meet the nation’s needs for reliable, clean, efficient energy systems with minimal environmental footprint. In addition, NETL engages in other research complementary to its mission, including reimbursable work and work for others.
The vast majority of DOE FE work done within NETL ORD resides within one of four Focus Areas. These Focus Areas comprise related fields of experience, activity, or knowledge that generally align with one or more of the funding lines that are dictated by Congressional appropriation and make up the DOE FE research program. They provide a technical, rather than administrative, rationale for organizing research, and assist in ensuring that projects are funded from appropriate budget lines. A description of the current Focus Areas can be found on the NETL web site at: http://www.netl.doe.gov/onsite_research/index.html.
