SAIC
: 08 December, 2009  (Application Story)
Under a new contract extension, SAIC will continue to provide IT support to all of NASA’s facilities
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has been awarded a contract extension from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to continue work on the Unified NASA Information Technology Services (UNITeS) contract.

The initial extension award has an eight month base period of performance valued at nearly $120 million, and six one-month options valued at $116 million, bringing the total value of the extension to more than $235 million if all options are exercised. This contract extension raises the ceiling value of the contract to more than $1.3 billion and extends the contract through January 2011. The initial contract was awarded to SAIC in January 2004.

Under the extension, SAIC will continue to provide information technology (IT) services to NASA's Marshall Space Flight Centre (MSFC) in Huntsville, Ala., and support all NASA Centres, including NASA Headquarters and support for NASA's international sites and networks. SAIC will also provide services in support of NASA's wide area network, IT security, digital television, and Integrated Enterprise Management Program.

'It's an honour to have our performance recognised by this contract extension,' said Dan Harris, SAIC senior vice president and UNITeS program manager. 'The MSFC and enterprise-wide services we provide are continuing to help NASA leverage technology to achieve greater efficiencies and cost savings.'
