The contract begins October 15, 2005, with a one-year base period, followed by four one-year options that may be exercised at NASA's discretion. It is a performance-based, cost-plus performance fee and award fee, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract. It has a minimum order quantity value of $50 million and a maximum order quantity value of $500 million, if all options exercised.
