Company Overview: The Hanford Site sits on 586-square-miles of shrub-steppe desert in southeastern Washington State. Beginning in 1943, the site was used to produce plutonium for the bomb that brought an end to World War II. After a short lull, production was ramped up in 1947 to meet the challenges of the “Cold War” and continued until 1987 when the last reactor ceased operation. Weapons production processes left solid and liquid wastes that posed a risk to the local environment including the Columbia River. In 1989, the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE), Environmental Protection Agency, and Washington State Department of Ecology entered into a legally binding accord, the Tri-Party Agreement, to clean up the Hanford Site.
The DOE awarded a contract to provide a variety of services at the Hanford Site, called the Hanford Mission Essential Services Contract, to Hanford Mission Integration Solutions (HMIS), LLC in Richland, Washington. The HMIS LLC members are Leidos Integrated Technology, LLC (Gaithersburg, MD); Centerra Group, LLC (Palm Beach Gardens, FL); and Parsons Government Services, Inc. (Pasadena, CA). HMIS will provide site services, security and emergency services, land management services, and information technology services; manage the Hazardous Material Management and Emergency Response (HAMMER) Federal Training Center; maintain vital infrastructure; and perform infrastructure upgrades (e.g., electric, water, roads), as well as build future infrastructure to support operation of the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant.
Position Overview: Reporting directly to the President, the General Counsel of HMIS is responsible for all legal matters for this joint venture, to include business legal issues and complex regulatory matters, among other things. The General Counsel is part of the senior leadership team and will be a key executive responsible for ensuring that the contract with the DOE is properly executed.
Experience: 10+ years of relevant legal experience with deep experience interpreting and advising on government contracts, regulatory and labor/union laws. In-house or government experience in a related industry is preferred.
Compensation: Competitive base and bonus commensurate with experience.
