Jacobs has been awarded an extension to the Johnson Space Center Engineering, Technology and Science contract at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.
Jacobs will continue providing critical support to JSC’s Engineering Directorate and Exploration, Integration, and Science Directorate. It will provide integrated engineering design, testing, verification supporting NASA’s Artemis program to land the first woman and next man on the moon, preparing us for human missions to Mars.
Jacobs welcomes the opportunity to continue its almost two-decade-long relationship with the Johnson Space Center, said Jacobs Critical Mission Solutions Senior Vice President Steve Arnette.
“This contract extension allows us to continue to support NASA’s Artemis moon mission, providing critical integrated engineering and science support ensuring mission success in reaching the moon by 2024,” he said. “Additionally, Jacobs will continue to be a trusted partner to NASA providing advanced solutions, R&D, scientific and technical solutions that enhance our collective goal of creating a more connected, sustainable world.”
The contract extension represents a 2-year option covering the period of performance from May 1, 2020, to April 30, 2022. The maximum value of the contract extension is $478.4 million, which increases the NTE contract value to over $1.9 billion.
