Johnson Space Center, Houston, TX
NASA yesterday signed a contract modification with the Boeing Company, Houston, Texas, to supply additional engineering support for the International Space Station.
This modification increases the prime contract held by Boeing Information, Space and Defense Systems, by $477.9 million. The modification covers an incremental addition, as planned, of continued engineering support through Fiscal Year 2001 for sustaining engineering, post-production support and multi-element integration testing at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Florida.
Additionally, technical definition of changes and other engineering support - as required- to support station objectives will be covered. Work will be performed at various Boeing facilities in Huntington Beach, CA; Canoga Park, CA; Huntsville, AL; Orlando, FL; Houston, TX; and at various subcontractor facilities located throughout the United States.
Boeing was awarded the eight-year prime contract for the construction and integration of the station in 1995.
