CONTRACT RELEASE : C11-014
 
 
NASA Makes Selection For Integrated Communications Services
 
 
WASHINGTON -- NASA selected Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) of McLean, Va., for the NASA Integrated Communications Services (NICS) contract.

SAIC will provide managerial and technical expertise to support NASA's Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) for corporate and mission communications needs, including local area network management at all NASA centers. Functions include corporate and mission enterprise services; center and associated component facility services; infrastructure projects; and contract management services.

The contract is a follow-on effort for numerous agency and center contracts, including the Unified NASA Information Technology Services (UNITeS) contract and portions of the Outsourcing Desktop Initiative for NASA contracts.

NASA awarded a purchase order to SAIC for performance of phase-in activities to transition from existing contracts to NICS. This purchase order covers phase-in activities through May 31.

The NICS contract is part of the NASA Information Technology Infrastructure Integration Program, also known as I3P, managed by the agency's CIO. There will be a three-year base period, followed by one two-year option; one three-year option; and one two-year option period. The options may be exercised at NASA's discretion.

The NICS contract is a cost-plus-award-fee/incentive-fee contract, with an indefinite- delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) feature. The base award of this contract is $340 million. The maximum potential value of this contract if all options are exercised, including the maximum IDIQ value, is $1.3 billion.
