NASA Announces Information Technology Contract Extension

NASA extended the Unified NASA Information Technology Services, or UNITeS, contract with Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego.

The sole source contract extension provides agency-wide information services and integration support for the NASA Information Technology Service Network. The extension also supports the NASA Enterprise Applications Competency Center by providing system administration and mainframe operations administered by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

This extension begins Feb. 1 and includes an eight-month base period valued at approximately $36.4 million. The action extends the contract period of performance by a potential 14 months for the continuation of activities through March 31, 2012.

If all options are exercised, the period of performance will end in March 2012 with a potential value of $62.7 million. The UNITeS contract began Jan. 1, 2004 and has a total value, including this extension, of approximately $1.4 billion.

Marshall’s responsibilities for information technology include managing software applications; web and computer server systems; audio-visual information; telecommunications; information technology procurement and security; documentation storage; protection hardware maintenance; encryption security systems; computer networking; and digital imaging.
