Title:  Campaign 2: Survey of Approximately 800 Small Scale Site
Properties - Port Hope Area Initiative

There is a Security Requirement associated with this requirement.

Organizational Changes
All Bidders are advised that responsibility for certain
activities on the Port Hope Area Initiative relating to the
contract for this procurement may be transferred from Public
Works and Government Services Canada to the Canadian Nuclear
Laboratories Limited. 

Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC), on behalf
of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and Canadian Nuclear
Laboratories (CNL) Ltd. has a requirement for environmental and
radiological surveys, herein called Surveys, for the Small Scale
Sites (SSS) component of the Port Hope Area Initiative (PHAI).
The PHAI is in the process of completing the Survey of
approximately 5,000 properties primarily within Ward 1, and a
select few in Ward 2, of the Municipality of Port Hope.  These
sites are generally referred to as Small Scale Sites (SSS).
Properties found to have historic Low Level Radioactive Waste
(LLRW) above the PHAI Cleanup Criteria (CC) for the four (4)
signature Contaminants of Potential Concern (COPCs) (Uranium,
Arsenic, Radium 226 and Thorium 230) will be subject to
delineation and development of remediation plans. It is expected
that out of the approximately 5,000 properties, there are
between 300 and 400 sites with some degree of contamination that
will require remediation. 

In order to facilitate its management, the Survey of
approximately 5,000 properties, mostly residential but including
commercial, industrial, parkland and vacant properties, will be
completed in batches, referred to as Campaigns, over the next
several years. The first phase of the project (Campaign 1)
included the survey of approximately 450 properties. The project
was completed in September 2014.  This Statement of Work (SOW)
covers the Survey and related services for the next Campaign
(herein referred to as "Campaign 2") of approximately 800
Scope of Work
The overall objectives of the SSS Campaign 2 Surveys are to
determine presence/absence of LLRW, delineate identified LLRW
and develop remedial action plans and class D cost estimates for
those sites identified as having LLRW.  Work will be completed
in a phased approach, consisting of Phase 1 (Survey) and Phase 2
(Verification), summarized below: 

Phase 1 - Survey
1)	Phase 1A - Site Screening 
2)	Phase 1B - Initial Intrusive  Investigation
3)	Phase 1C - Detailed Contaminant Delineation 

Phase 2 - Verification
After completion of Phase 1 survey, complete the Verification
activities for those properties which meet the PHAI  CC.

Period of the Contract
The contract period is 80 weeks from the date of Contract award.
