NASA Awards Orion Project Integration Services Contract
 
 
WASHINGTON - NASA has awarded a contract for Orion Project integration services to Barrios Technology Ltd. of Houston. The small business contract has a potential value of $49 million with options. Work on the contract will be performed at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, with additional work possible at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Barrios will provide critical products and services supporting the Constellation Program's Orion Project, which is developing new spacecraft to transport people to the International Space Station, the moon and beyond. Barrios will support the project's business management, configuration and data management, requirements analysis and integration, and engineering and technical services.

The procurement was a small business set-aside. The basic period of the indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-award-fee contract is three years. The contract's base value is not to exceed $29 million. Two one-year extension options are available and could bring the total contract value to $49 million. Science Applications International Corporation of Houston will be a major subcontractor.
