Washington River Protection Solutions at Hanford has received $23 million in payment for fiscal 2012.

The Department of Energy contractor manages the tank farms holding 56 million gallons of radioactive waste.

It met all performance-based incentive milestones to receive 100 percent of the $20 million in pay possible for milestones. It also earned $3.07 million for scoring "very good," the second to top rating, on a Performance Evaluation and Measurement Plan.

The $3.07 million is about 88 percent of the $3.5 million possible for conduct of operations, general management, quality assurance program compliance, nuclear safety and environmental regulatory management.
