Maryland firm wins NASA technology work

     The General Services Administration (GSA) has selected Raytheon Technical Services Company of Lanham, MD, to perform information technology services for NASA’s Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA. The work is valued at more than $183 million over the next eight years.

     The procurement, jointly evaluated by GSA and NASA, was awarded under one of GSA’s existing "Millennia" contracts. Day-to-day administration of the work will be performed by personnel from Langley.

     The work consists of a broad range of information technology services for business and scientific applications. The services include systems administration, systems maintenance, database administration, development of new software and modification of existing software. Work is expected to begin February 1, 2001.

     Part of GSA’s mission is to provide Multiple Award Indefinite Quantity (MAIQ) contracts which all Federal agencies may use to procure support for information technology. One such program is GSA’s Millennia MAIQ, which provides services for new and emerging technologies.

     Established in 1917 as the first national civil aeronautics laboratory, Langley is a world-class center for aeronautics, earth science, space technology, and structures and materials research. Seventy percent of Langley’s effort is in aeronautics research, working to improve today’s aircraft and to develop concepts for future aircraft. The Center supports the nation’s space program by conducting a dynamic program in atmospheric sciences, seeking a more detailed understanding of the Earth’s atmosphere. Langley researchers are also developing technology for advanced space transportation systems and for small spacecraft and instruments.
