NASA Selects NYMA, Inc., for $180-Million Contract Negotiations

Cleveland, OH -- The NASA Lewis Research Center has selected NYMA, Inc., Greenbelt, Md., for negotiations leading to the award of a contract for scientific, engineering, technical, administrative and related activities to support Lewis' mission responsibilities.

The initial contract award is valued at $45-million, with the total contract value estimated at $180 million. The cost-plus-award fee contract will have a 30-45 day phase-in period, a basic two-year period and three one-year option periods for a total contract life of 60 months. Work is to begin on September 23, 1993.

The contract, which is a new 8(a) contract, will encompass a broad range of tasks which include basic analytical research; detailed space power systems analysis studies; and design, development, fabrication and operation of manned and unmanned space flight experiments. Work will be performed at the NASA Lewis Research Center, Cleveland, Ohio.

Administered by the Small Business Administration, the 8(a) program allows the Government to set-aside contracts to be awarded to a specific group of socially and economically disadvantaged groups. Award of this contract to an 8(a) contractor is in line with NASA's goal of awarding 8 percent of its contracts to small disadvantaged businesses. The Lewis Research Center is obligating approximately $64 million in contracts to Small Disadvantaged Businesses from the estimated total obligations of $800 million for fiscal year 1993.
