EPA’s Superfund Program cleans up the most serious uncontrolled or abandoned releases of contamination at polluted sites. There have been many hazardous commercial and industrial wastes that have been mismanaged across the country which has resulted in thousands of contaminated sites that have posed risks to human health and the environment. Under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), the Biden-Harris Administration, plans to invest $3.5 billion in environmental remediation at the Superfund National Priorities List sites. This is considered to be one of the largest investments in American history to address the legacy pollution that harms the public health of communities and neighborhoods.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) is committed to leveraging targeted initiatives and strategies focused on the expansion of the utilization of socioeconomic small businesses within its Superfund remedial acquisitions. We are looking for capable and qualified socioeconomic small businesses that specialize in Design and Engineering Services, Remediation Environmental Services, and Environmental Services and Operation with an emphasis on those businesses operating under the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes of 541620 (Environmental Consulting Services) and 562910 (Remediation Services).
We are requesting socioeconomic small businesses follow the simple steps outlined in this flyer to register for the EPA OSDBU Small Business Vendor Database. Registration in the EPA OSDBU Small Business Vendor Database will assist EPA acquisition officials with market research and vendor engagement activities and the ability to streamline and expedite the identification of qualified vendors for individual Superfund remedial acquisitions.
All questions and concerns related to this request can be sent to Dianna Price, EPA Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Small Business Specialist at OSDBU@epa.gov.
