NASA EXTENDS SPACE STATION PAYLOAD INTEGRATION CONTRACT

NASA has awarded The Boeing Company of Houston a contract extension for payload integration work in support of the International Space Station.

NASA plans to exercise the fiscal year 2005 option with Boeing to extend the International Space Station Payload Integration Contract (IPIC). The option is worth $70,398,844, bringing the total contract value to $203,666,284.

Work covered under the extension will begin in October 2004 and continue through September 2005.

Under the IPIC, Boeing performs Space Station payload integration work, including payload software integration and flight software production; payload facility sustaining engineering and logistics support; and payload engineering integration.

Awarded in 2002, the IPIC consolidated payload integration work is performed at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Ala., and Johnson Space Center, Houston. It is a cost-plus-award-fee, completion form contract. Additional work will be performed at Boeing facilities in Houston, Huntsville and Kennedy Space Center, Fla.
