Carlsbad Technical Assistance Contract (CTAC)

Carlsbad, New Mexico

North Wind Portage staff provided Quality Assurance support, technical oversight support, and administrative operations support to all Carlsbad Field Office (CBFO) program areas for the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Technical Assistance Contractor.

The CBFO program areas included: transuranic (TRU) waste packaging, certification, and transportation; worker health and safety; environmental compliance; nuclear and mining facility engineering and operations; international waste repository and scientific programs; and WIPP recovery.  North Wind Portage supported CBFO senior management in addressing ongoing incident response and recovery activities while at the same time meeting all other surveillance and audit commitments involving the TRU waste generator sites, the national laboratories, CBFO, and NWP. All work was performed on schedule with no impact on the quality of the deliverables.

“CBFO and the National TRU Program depend on CTAC to support their mission of managing the Nation’s TRU waste inventory from the point of generation to final disposal,” said Tim Runyon, CTAC Senior Project Manager. “North Wind Portage is proud to have provided outstanding support under technically demanding conditions, since 2010.”
