Portsmouth Contractor Receives 'Good' Evaluation,
Earns 74 Percent of 2017 Fee
Fluor-BWXT chemical operator Eric Ramey operates an overhead crane at the former Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - EM gave its decontamination and decommissioning (D&D) contractor at the former Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant in Ohio a "good" evaluation and awarded $24.3 million, or 74 percent, of the fee available for its performance from March 2016 through September 2017.

The evaluation determines the portion of contractor fee to be paid based on performance. EM's cost-plus-award-fee contracts are designed to provide incentive for excellence. In determining the awards, EM considers overall performance along with completion of specific EM mission objectives and agreed-upon incentives. The results are summarized on a scorecard, and metrics are set in accordance with a performance evaluation and measurement plan.

Open Enrollment for Medicare
Ends  December 7th -  AAA7 Available for Assistance and Help

Are you a Medicare beneficiary? Are you aware that open enrollment for  some Medicare benefits ends December 7th? Open enrollment is the
time of the year when changes can be made in the plans and providers
you've chosen for your Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage
and/or Medicare Advantage option. If you wish to make changes,
you can only do so between October 15th and December 7th. Open enrollment is also a good time to run drug comparisons to make sure the Medicare Part D plan you are on is still your best option as Medicare Part D plans do change from year to year.
