NNSA announces extension for CNS for up to Five Years

The Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration announced an extension for CNS for up to five years.

The announcement said the extension period is up to five years for the Y-12 National Security Complex and up to three years for the Pantex Plant.

The contract extension is to make sure the NNSA’s mission work isn’t impacted while also providing stability and continuity for the two plants.

In May, NNSA decided to create two separate contracts for the Pantex Plant and Y-12 plant.

This extension will allow NNSA enough time to facilitate a full and open competition and an orderly transition for both plants.
