NASA Chooses Services Provider at Marshall Space Flight Center
NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) in Huntsville, Ala., has selected EG&G Technical Services, Inc. of Gaithersburg, Md., for an order under a General Services Administration (GSA) contract to provide institutional services.

The order has a three-year base period followed by options that may be exercised at NASA’s discretion. The total potential order period is eight years. Work performed is on a performance-based, firm-fixed-price basis with an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity provision. It has a minimum value of $21.54 million and a maximum value of $154.76 million. The maximum value would apply if all follow-on options, maximum quantity requirements, and all award-term periods exercised.

Services under the contract will be performed at MSFC facilities from April 1, 2003, through March 31, 2006. If NASA awards all options work could continue until March 31, 2011. Work under the order includes environmental services, mail distribution, equipment maintenance and repair, motor pool services, and property management support such as warehousing, supply, inventory, shipping, receiving, handling flight hardware, property disposal, move operations and food services.

The procurement was handled under a GSA program, which allows MSFC to choose which companies, already under contract with GSA, receive the solicitation. Three quotations were received and evaluated. The order supersedes an effort involving similar services provided by Cortez III Service Corporation of Albuquerque, N.M., under contract NAS8-97327.
