The contract is managed by NASA’s Office of the Chief Information Officer, and will provide assets and services vital to the agency’s mission in continuing to be a world leader in aeronautics, human and robotic space exploration, scientific research and space technology development.
The cost-plus-award-fee/award term contract also has fixed price services and indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity components. It’s the follow-on contract to the NASA Integrated Communications Services contract.
