The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has a requirement to obtain contractor support to aid in code integration, assessment, and application of an evaluation model for the Next Generation Nuclear Plant (NGNP) Project in the reactor systems analysis area, to include aiding in code integration, assessment, and application of an evaluation model for the NGNP in the reactor systems analysis area. The principal deliverables of this contract will be: (1) an integrated code suite that composes the NGNP evaluation model, (2) an implementation of an uncertainty methodology for this EM, and (3) a code applicability report for the application of this EM to the NGNP design. The code applicability report will be similar to those produced for the analyses of the ESBWR and the AP-1000 designs with the TRACE code. The scope of this contract will be limited to code integration, assessment, and application of an Evaluation Model for the NGNP in the area of reactor/plant systems analysis, including thermal-fluid dynamics, nuclear analysis, accident fission product transport and source-term analysis. The performance of this contract will require close collaboration with other NRC contractors as development of the individual codes from which the EM will be assembled may be performed elsewhere.
NRC intends to award a single award indefinite quantity/indefinite delivery task order contract. As tasks are identified, NRC will issue individual task order statements of work that specify objectives, scope, deliverables, schedule, and other requirements.
The solicitation is expected to be posted on or about December 14, 2009. The solicitation package is only available through FEDBIZOPS.
