EDWARDS, Calif. - NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center has selected Linxx Global Solutions, Inc., of Virginia Beach, Va., to provide protective services at the NASA field center on Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., and its satellite facility in Palmdale, Calif.

The baseline contract includes a firm fixed price component valued at more than $2.7 million for the first year. If four one-year options are exercised, the contract could be worth more than $13.9 million over the five-year period. In addition, the award includes an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity component valued at up to $1 million for potential services that might be needed beyond those covered in the base contract, which could bring the total potential contract value to more than $14.9 million.

The contract will be effective as of Sept. 1, 2012, and following a 13-month phase-in and base period, could extend up to Sept. 30, 2017.

Under terms of the agreement, Linxx Global Solutions will be responsible for day-to-day operational activities of the center's physical, information, industrial and personnel security; law enforcement and emergency management programs in partnership with government counterparts under the center's Office of Protective Services. The firm will provide services at both the center's main campus at Edwards Air Force Base and at the Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility in Palmdale, Calif., and at such other locations as may be directed by the government.

Under terms of the contract, G4S Government Solutions, Inc., of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., will provide protective services work at the Dryden facilities under subcontract with Lynxx Global Solutions.
