HOUSTON -- NASA has exercised two six-month options to the agency's Safety and Mission Assurance Support Services Contract with Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) of San Diego for the Johnson Space Center in Houston. The options are worth $32.9 million.

Exercise of the options provides continuity of support services in safety, reliability and quality assurance, engineering products and technical services for Johnson's Safety and Mission Assurance Directorate for the International Space Station Program, Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, and Extravehicular Activity Office. The options also include all new Johnson programs and projects.

The options begin May 1 and end April 30, 2013. They will bring the total contract value to $365.1 million. The original contract, awarded in 2006, was for three years, with two one-year options ending April 30, 2011. In April 2011, the contract was extended to add an additional base year and two six-month options ending April 2013.

Work under the contract will be performed at Johnson; NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida; White Sands Test Facility near Las Cruces, N.M.; and SAIC's facilities in Houston.
