Abstract : The remediation contracting process for Hazardous, Toxic, and Radiological Wastes (HTRW) is inherently risky. The Government must mitigate cost, schedule, and performance risks that are a result of HTRW complexities. When Fort Ord, California, was designated for closure in 1991 by the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission, the U.S. Army became responsible for the total remediation of Fort Ord's properties. The effort represents a large-scale, complex remediation project to remove both surface and sub-surface hazardous and toxic wastes. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), Sacramento District is in charge of Fort Ord's ultimate cleanup. The Corps is using the Total Environmental Restoration Contracts (TERC) method as the principal tool to facilitate the required remediation; This thesis identifies and analyzes the risk mitigation efforts, from acquisition planning through contract administration, employed by the Corps in its contracting efforts. The objective of this thesis is to identify the unique risk mitigation strengths and weaknesses of the Corps efforts and to recommend future risk mitigation efforts for large-scale HTRW remediation efforts. jg p2
