Support services provider chosen for Marshall Space Flight Center

The Marshall Center has selected EG&G Technical Services, Inc., of Austin, Texas, to provide center operations support services. The contract provides for operations and maintenance of all Marshall Center facilities and collateral equipment, plus other related functions.

The one-year contract, with provision for four one-year options, was awarded after a competitive selection process. It could be worth up to $130 million over five years if NASA exercises all four options as well as maximum quantity requirements. Most of the services will be provided on a firm-fixed price basis. Other services are to be provided on an as-needed basis under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity section of the contract.

EG&G will be supported by several subcontractor team members, all of which are small business firms: Mainthia Technologies Inc.; Greenway Enterprises Inc.; Echota Research and Science Applications; Alabama A&M Research Institute; and Plexus Scientific Corp.

Services under the contract will be performed on-site at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville and will extend from July, 2003, through June 30, 2004. If NASA exercises the four one-year options, services will be continued through June 30, 2008.

EG&G is required to provide all resources, including labor, supervision, tools, equipment, materials, spare parts, incidental engineering, transportation, and management necessary to accomplish the work. The contract terms also emphasize that services being provided will support Marshall's missions in a safe, reliable and timely manner.
