WASHINGTON -- NASA will exercise the second of two one-year options on a three-year, $182.6 million contract to Enterprise Advisory Services Inc., of Houston for facility operations and support at NASA's White Sands Test Facility in Las Cruces, N.M. NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston manages the facility.

This option is worth $61.4 million and brings the total contract amount to date to $305.2 million. The hybrid, cost-plus award fee, fixed-price, and indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract began May 1, 2006. This action will extend it through April 30, 2011.

Enterprise Advisory Services will provide non-mission services, including facility construction, environmental services and operations of the White Sands Space Harbor. The company also will support testing at White Sands to verify and improve spaceflight systems, capabilities and materials, and to ensure the safety of human spaceflight.
