NASA Announces Information Technology Contract Extension
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- NASA has extended the Unified NASA Information Technology Services, or UNITeS, contract with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) of San Diego. This extension allows for the completion of an information technology infrastructure realignment and implementation through competition of various NASA agency-wide contracts.

The $214,470,324 contract extension provides NASA with agency-wide information services, information technology services to NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., and support for Marshall's Integrated Enterprise Management Program, which combines agency financial resources and travel office information.

The modification provides additional support from Jan. 1, 2009, through Nov. 30, 2009. With this extension, the value of the contract, including options, is approximately $1.1 billion. The UNITeS contact was awarded to SAIC in January 2004.

Marshall's responsibilities for information technology include managing software applications, Web/computer server systems, audiovisual information, telecommunications, information technology security, information technology procurement, documentation storage and protection hardware maintenance. Support under the UNITeS contract includes NASA-wide information technology security, encryption security systems, computer networking and digital imaging.
