NASA Extends Engineering Services Contract
NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC), Houston, has awarded a modification to extend a cost-plus-award-fee contract for engineering services with Lockheed Martin Space Operations of Houston.

The one-year extension is for a nine-month base period with three one-month options. The base period is valued at $144.9 million; the three successive monthly options are for $10.6 million, $15.3 million and $13.1 million, respectively. The extension brings the total value of the 11-year Science, Engineering, Analysis, and Test contract to $1.9 billion.

Under the contract, Lockheed Martin Space Operations provides engineering, scientific and technical support to research and development laboratories and projects; engineering, maintenance and operations support for research and development facilities; engineering and programming support of automatic data-processing equipment and networks; and design, development and operations support of payloads and flight hardware. Lockheed also will provide technical support to flight crew training for payloads and spacewalks and furnish equipment and systems associated with that work.

The work will be performed at JSC and at Lockheed Martin's facility in Houston.
