RELEASE: 99-38AR

NASA AMES MODIFIES CONTRACT AWARD FOR SOFTWARE VERIFICATION

NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA, has modified its contract with Intermetrics Inc., of Vienna, VA, to provide independent verification and validation of selected NASA program software in support of the NASA Software Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) Facility, Fairmont, West VA.

The "cost-plus-fixed-fee/incentive fee" contract, including all options, will be increased in value by $47,504,325 to approximately $80.5 million. The eight-year contract, awarded in October 1996, included a one-year base period, followed by seven one-year options. In addition to the IV&V Facility, work under the modified contract will also be performed at the Johnson Space Center, Houston, TX.

Intermetrics Inc., conducts independent verification and validation of software designed for selected catastrophic, critical and high-risk situations on selected agency projects, including the International Space Station, the Space Shuttle program, selected ground and robotics systems and other selected NASA programs. This contract modification will increase the level of IV& V Facility support for the International Space Station, the Space Shuttle program and a few new NASA programs such as the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA).
