HOUSTON - NASA has awarded a $30.4 million extension of the Center Operations Support Services (COSS) Contract for Johnson Space Center to Computer Sciences Corp. of Fort Worth, Texas.

The contract, which begins April 1, has a base period of six months followed by five one-month options. It is an extension of a Computer Sciences' Applied Technology Division contract. Exercise of the five one-month options would bring the total potential value to $55.4 million.

Computer Sciences has held the COSS Contract for five years. The six-month extension and the options would bring the total value of the contract to $342.8 million throughout the nearly six-year period.

The contract includes operations support activities at Johnson's Sonny Carter Training Facility and Ellington Field. It involves support in maintenance and operations, grounds, custodial, transportation, logistics, property and equipment, construction, engineering and environmental areas.
