AIKEN, S.C. (November 1, 2022) — The Savannah River Site’s liquid waste contractor, Savannah River Mission Completion (SRMC), recently hosted over 40 small businesses for a workshop.
SRMC’s Small Business Workshop, held at Aiken Technical College, provided both local and out-of-state vendors with information on how to work with SRMC. Topics discussed included upcoming opportunities for materials, services and construction, and strategic agreements. Speakers included Chief Administrative Officer Mark Barth, Supply Chain Management Director Doug McCrary, and Small Business Program Director Ashley Hannah.
As a part of its community commitment, SRMC is subcontracting 18% of the cumulative value of its task orders to small businesses. Regional small businesses are essential to SRMC’s vision to finish the mission in 2037, according to Barth.
“The work done by our vendors is vital to our mission to safely reduce the risk to the community and the environment of radioactive liquid waste stored in aging waste tanks at the Savannah River Site,” Barth said. “While all our vendors are important, we want to reach small businesses who often aren’t sure how to provide certain materials and services to us.”
