Coastal International Security to Provide Protective Services Spanning 14 NASA Facilities in 12 States

Coastal International Security, Inc. (Coastal) announced today that it has been awarded a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) contract in the amount of approximately $120 million per year, totaling $1.18 billion over the next 10 years should all options be exercised by NASA. The contract will consolidate protective services being performed independently at 14 NASA locations, including the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, Kennedy and Johnson Space Centers, and the NASA headquarters in Washington, D.C.

“We are extremely honored to have won such an important and prestigious contract,” said Curtis Wrenn, president of Coastal. “Our unlimited commitment to serving our clients, including NASA for the past five years, to our employees and communities are the foundation of the exceptional services our people provide every day around the world. We look forward to partnering with NASA to execute their enhanced national security and safety program.”

By merging the protective services being performed at these locations into a single contract, Coastal will be able to provide NASA with integrated measures to mitigate security threats through effective policies and services. Under the new contract, Coastal will be providing these 14 NASA locations with emergency management, security services, fire services, export control and information assurance.

Coastal is a subsidiary of Akal Security, Inc., a major Government security services provider headquartered in New Mexico. Coastal’s proposal was determined to have provided the “best value” to NASA, in a full and open competition with four of America’s largest security services providers.
