NASA Announces Information Technology Contract Extension
 
 
WASHINGTON -- NASA has extended the Unified NASA Information Technology Services, or UNITeS, contract with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) of San Diego. The action is intended to allow for the completion of recompetition activities for NASA's Information Technology Infrastructure Integration Program, which encompasses agency-wide management, integration and delivery of information technology infrastructure services.

The contract extension provides NASA with agency-wide information services and integration support for NASA's Integrated Enterprise Management Program, or IEPM, administered by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. The contract also provides additional information technology services for the Marshall Center until such time as follow-on contracts are awarded for these efforts.

The contract modification extends the period of performance by 14 months, including an eight-month base period, valued at approximately $120 million, followed by six one-month options. The extension began Dec. 1 and ends Jan. 31, 2011, if all options are exercised.

The UNITeS contract began Jan. 1, 2004. The total value of the UNITeS contract, including this extension, is approximately $1.31 billion.

Marshall's responsibilities for information technology include managing software applications, Web/computer server systems, audio-visual information, telecommunications, information technology security, information technology procurement, documentation storage and protection hardware maintenance. Support provided under the UNITeS contract includes NASA-wide information technology security, encryption security systems, computer networking and digital imaging.
