Savannah River Site contractor Shaw AREVA MOX Services earned just 50.4 percent of its performance-based incentive fees in fiscal 2012, making perfect scores on health and safety but poor marks for engineering and construction.
The consortium, which is building the mixed oxide fuel facility – or MOX plant – was awarded $4,392,594 out of a possible $8,715,465, according to the company’s notification letter from the National Nuclear Security Administration, which gave the firm “an overall rating of satisfactory.”
The group’s scores ranged from 100 percent in the health, safety and environmental category to just 1 percent in the engineering and construction sector.
Other scores included 80 percent in both community outreach and MOX fuel codes; 75 percent in security; 51 percent in both quality assurance and timely response/lessons learned; and 10 percent in project management and business systems, the letter said.
By comparison, SRS management contractor Savannah River Nuclear Solutions earned almost 85 percent of its performance-based incentive award, receiving $41,492,503 of a possible $48,950,000; and security contractor WSI received $2,602,047, representing 97 percent of its possible award in fiscal 2012.
