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 NASAs 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 GSAs 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 GSAs 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 GSAs 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
Langleys effort is in aeronautics research, working to
improve todays aircraft and to develop concepts for future
aircraft. The Center supports the nations space program by
conducting a dynamic program in atmospheric sciences, seeking a
more detailed understanding of the Earths atmosphere. Langley
researchers are also developing technology for advanced space
transportation systems and for small spacecraft and
