The Department of Energy has given the company that manages and operates Los Alamos National Laboratory a six-month extension on its legacy cleanup bridge contract, the department announced Tuesday.

The cleanup contract extension will enable a smooth transition to a new legacy cleanup contract, the DOE said in a news release.

This contract is separate from the operations and management contract, which is expected to go out for bid later this year. The National Nuclear Security Administration is working on a draft request for proposals for the operations and management contract.

The legacy cleanup contract for Los Alamos National Security will now end March 31, 2018.

The total value of the six-month contract extension is about $65 million, according to the DOE.
