US DoD: $10.9M to Recycle Electronics
Global Investment Recovery in Tampa, FL won a maximum $10.9 million firm-fixed-price, indefinite delivery/ indefinite quantity, total set aside contract with an 18 month base and 3 more 12-month options for “electronic equipment de-manufacturing services.” The firm recycles electronics, extracting metals from circuit boards and also providing services like total destruction of disk drives.
Work will be performed in Tampa, FL; Reno, NV, and Salley, SC; and the date of performance completion is February 19, 2009. There were 7 responses to the original proposal by the Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service (DRMS) in Battle Creek, MI (SP4410-07-D-1007). Which shouldn’t be surprising, as the US EPA named 7 providers in December 2004 for its Recycling Electronics and Asset Disposition with a Government Wide Acquisition Contract, in order to help federal agencies meet requirements of Executive Order #13101, “Greening the Government through Waste Prevention, Recycling, and Acquisition.”
