NASA, Boeing Agree to ISS Contract Modification

NASA and the Boeing Co., Houston, TX, today announced a modification to the existing contract for the International Space Station that will focus the remaining contract work on the upcoming assembly and early operations tasks for the orbiting complex.

The modification completes a number of planned improvements to the contract. Specifically, it reorganizes the statement of work to focus the assembly and operations tasks and establishes a means to track new content; it also successfully settles a number of existing contractual issues; and finally, it revises the fee structure from the original Cost-Plus-Award Fee/Incentive Fee/Fixed Fee to a Cost-Plus-Award Fee/Fixed Fee structure. These changes will significantly facilitate efficient, high quality performance for the remaining work under this contract.

Boeing was awarded the eight-year prime contract for the construction and integration of the ISS in 1995 and the Design, Development, Test and Evaluation of the US On-Orbit Segment hardware is nearing completion. The modification, effective today, valued at $536,999,404, captures currently budgeted work and will bring the current contract value to $9,086,422,204.

Work on the contract is being performed at various Boeing facilities located in Huntington Beach and Canoga Park, CA; Huntsville, AL; Orlando, FL; Houston, TX; and at various subcontract facilities located throughout the U.S.
