Contracting Office Address

NASA/Ames Research Center, JA:M/S 241-1, Moffett Field, CA 94035-0001


NASA/ARC intends to extend contract NAS2-02090 with Lockheed Martin Space Operations on a sole-source basis pursuant to 10 U.S.C 2304(c)(1), Only One Responsible Source. The performance period will be extended for a potential seven month period of performance, consisting of one 3-month base period and four 1-month options.

The principle purpose of this contract is to support science, space, exploration efforts through discrete programs and projects. At NASA Ames Research Center (ARC) the Programs and Projects Directorate conducts and manages programs, projects and develops and executes missions. Support requirements span multiple Directorates at ARC, other NASA Centers and NASA Headquarters. In order for the various Directorates to develop, manage, and execute programs within its mission area, research and development is required in the areas of Program Management, Project Management, Program Support, Collaborative Technologies, Engineering, Hardware and Software Systems Engineering and Educational Outreach.

The extension will extend the period of performance of the current contract, NAS2-02090, for three (3) months, from July 1, 2013 through September 30, 2013, for the base period; and end on January 31, 2014, if all four 1-month options are exercised. The extension will not increase the current contract value. The extension is the Government’s best interest to provide ongoing Programs and Projects services until a new contract is awarded. The current Contractor, Lockheed Martin is considered the only Contractor that can meet ARC’s needs given the short period of performance for the extension. The three (3) month extension with four (4) 1-month options is necessary to maintain the critical continuity of support services until the current procurement process for the follow-on contract has been completed and a new contract awarded.
