Under the contract, the company provides gas, materials and environmental laboratory analysis; professional data reduction and analysis; maintenance of measurement standards; and the calibration and repair of instrumentation. A2Research is recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration as a Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star worksite for its commitment to safety and health.
Jacobs Technology Inc. was presented the large business Contractor Excellence Award. The company has performed the Facility Operating Services Contract at Stennis since 2007. The scope of the contract includes program management, life support services, engineering services, institutional services, facility maintenance and operations, and logistics and transportation services to Stennis and its federal city resident organizations. Jacobs also is recognized by OSHA as a VPP Star worksite for its ongoing safety and health program.
Contractor Excellence Awards were presented to representatives of the companies during a Feb. 5 ceremony at Stennis. The Stennis Contractor Excellence Award was established in 2008 to recognize large and small business contractors, subcontractors or providers for outstanding performance during a three-year period.
Stennis Director Rick Gilbrech praised the companies for their support of the NASA mission. “A2Research and Jacobs Technology employees are invaluable members of the NASA team at Stennis,” Gilbrech said. “Their commitment to excellence is critical as we continue our work to test the engines that power the nation’s space program.”
