CONTRACT RELEASE C13-037
NASA Exercises Expendable Launch Vehicle Contract Option

NASA has exercised the first option on a contract providing integrated services for the preparation and launch of the next generation of the agency's scientific and exploration spacecraft.

The two-year Option Period 1 on the Expendable Launch Vehicle Integrated Support (ELVIS) 2 contract, operated by a.i. solutions Inc. of Lanham, Md., begins Oct. 1 and is valued at about $56.5 million. The contract contains another potential option period that would begin in October 2015, if exercised.

The ELVIS 2 contract began in April 2012 and has a potential maximum value of $138.1 million. This contract resulted from a competitive small business set-aside.

The ELVIS 2 contract supports NASA's Launch Services Program (LSP) and LSP-sponsored missions, activities and strategic initiatives for multiple NASA programs, the Defense Department and other government agencies and commercial launch activities. The contractor will support program management; vehicle engineering and analysis; launch site engineering; communications and telemetry; technical integration services; LSP programmatic safety, reliability and quality assurance; LSP operations at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California; information technology; and special studies.
