This Week's Highlight - Media Management for Radioactive Waste Facility

While government departments frequently outsource their media management tasks, not all departments or agencies are quite as challenging as the National Radioactive Waste Management Facility (NRWMF). This week the NRWMF has issued a Request For Tender seeking just that – an experienced service provider to undertake the organisation’s media management.

The NRWMF Taskforce manages the process of creating a single, safe, purpose-built facility to manage Australia’s radioactive waste. The facility will dispose of Australia’s low level waste (mainly created from nuclear medicine and research) and temporarily store Australia’s intermediate level waste (created from spent fuel rods at Lucas Heights) until a separate disposal solution is created. At present Australia’s waste is located in over 100 locations around the country, mainly in hospitals and universities. These locations are licensed for temporary storage only.

Beginning 4 years ago, the task of finding a suitable site has relied on extensive stakeholder engagement and has included the use of volunteered land and a requirement for broad community support to host a facility. The technical and safety aspects of the project are considered to be straightforward and manageable, and the facility will manage Australia’s waste in an environmentally sustainable way. Regardless, and as would be expected, although there is considerable support for the project in the community, it still receives its share of criticism from some locals and organised activist groups.

Respondents to this tender should be aware that the project is expected to continue for several years. Following site selection, a period of 2 to 3 years of regulatory approvals (environmental and safety) will be required before construction commences. The initial term of the contract will be 12 months with 2 options to extend for a period of 12 months each. The Request For Tender closes 9 Jul 19.
