NASA Awards Multi-Milion Dollar Contract to Small Business

NASA's Glenn Research Center has selected Call Henry, Inc. a small business in Cocoa, Fla., for a contract to provide maintenance, repair, operation and modification services for several systems and facilities at the center. The contract begins on June 2, 2003, and it is a follow-on contract to an existing agreement for similar services.

This is a firm-fixed price contract plus indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with an "award term" incentive to earn additional contract years for "excellent" performance. The annual firm-fixed prices average about $6.3 million plus an estimated $2.5 million annually for delivery orders. Over the maximum 10-year contract period, the firm-fixed price is $66.9 and its estimated IDIQ value is $27.3 million, for a total of $94.2 million.

Services under this contract include scheduled preventative maintenance, predictive testing and inspection of institutional systems, including heating, ventilation and air conditioning, utility distribution (high and low-voltage electricity and natural gas), water and sewer piping, the operation of steam plant and boilers, cooling towers and chillers, and high voltage switching, and building, roads, and grounds maintenance.

Call Henry, Inc. will be subcontracting at least 15% to JDD, Inc., a small, disadvantaged business in Cleveland.
