NASA Awards Johnson Safety And Mission Assurance Contract

WASHINGTON - NASA has selected Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) of McLean, Va., to provide safety and mission assurance engineering support services for the agency's Johnson Space Center in Houston.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract has a three-year base period beginning Oct. 1, and a pair of one-year options that would extend the contract through September 2018. Cost-plus-award fee and firm-fixed-price task orders could bring the total contract value to $202.5 million.

SAIC will support the Safety and Mission Assurance Directorate in providing programmatic support to the International Space Station, Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, Extravehicular Activity Office, Advanced Exploration Systems Office, and any future programs and projects performed by Johnson.

Support under the contract requires skills associated with safety, reliability, maintainability, quality and risk management at Johnson and the White Sands Test Facility near Las Cruces, N.M.

Additionally, work will be performed at vendor manufacturing and engineering facilities, including ARES Corp. in Burlingame, Calif.; GHG Corp. in Webster, Texas; JES Tech in Houston; and Millennium Engineering and Integration Co. in Arlington, Va.
