Science Applications International (SAIC) has been awarded an enterprise applications service technologies (EAST) contract by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
Under this agreement, SAIC will provide an array of information technology (IT) services in support of the NASA enterprise applications competency centre.
SAIC said that the single-award contract begins from 1 February 2011, and has a two-year base period of performance, one two-year option and a single one-year option.
The contract also has an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) component and the maximum potential value of this contract if all options are exercised, including the ID/IQ component, is $321m.
SAIC said that it will provide all services necessary to operate and maintain NASA’s set of integrated enterprise application systems supporting all 10 NASA field centres, NASA Headquarters in Washington, DC, and the NASA Shared Services Center in Bay St. Louis, Missouri.
The work will be performed at the Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) in Huntsville, Alabama.
The EAST contract is part of the NASA Information Technology Infrastructure Integration Program (I3P), which aims to consolidate the agency’s IT and data services.
