Operations Support Center Contract Awarded
NASA has selected COLSA Corporation of Huntsville, Ala., as prime contractor for its Huntsville Operations Support Center (HOSC) contract. The estimated value of the contract is approximately $125.6 million.

COLSA will provide operations and maintenance and system development services to meet the requirements of the Flight Projects Directorate, Ground Systems Department and the International Space Station Payload Operations Center and its customers.

The HOSC contract, with a period of performance of five years, is a small business set-aside and the fourth of the five work packages contained in the Space Mission Communications and Data Services (SMCDS) solicitation. The contracts awarded as a result of SMCDS will succeed a portion of the current NASA Consolidated Space Operations Contract (CSOC). The Huntsville Operations Support Center contract is also a re-competition of the Utilization and Mission Services contract.

Other members of the COLSA Corporation team include subcontractors Computer Sciences Corporation of Lanham, Md., and Morgan Research Corporation of Huntsville, Ala.
