B&W Responds to Decision on Second Procurement Protest

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) (NYS: BWC) has learned of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) decision to dismiss as premature most of the protest filed by Nuclear Production Partners, LLC (NP2). This protest was filed in regard to the corrective action taken by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) after GAO sustained NP2's initial protest of the combined management and operating contract award for the Y-12 National Security Complex (Y-12) and Pantex Plant (Pantex).

"With the agency maintaining that most of NP2's protest is premature, we look forward to NNSA's next steps in the process, knowing the strength of our proposal and team," said George Dudich, President, Babcock & Wilcox Technical Services Group, Inc. "In the meantime, we remain focused on operating Y-12 and Pantex safely and securely until a final decision on the contract is made."

NP2 submitted the additional information requested by the NNSA Contracting Officer's notice letter to NP2, dated June 6, 2013, after NP2's first protest was sustained.
