June 08, 2017
GREENBELT, Md. NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center has awarded Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) contract to provide multidisciplinary engineering support services for the center. The single-award contract has a five-year base period of performance and an award ceiling of $620 million.
Under the terms of the contract -- termed the NASA Omnibus Multidiscipline Engineering Services (OMES) II contract -- SAIC will provide engineering services to Goddard’s Applied Engineering and Technology Directorate (AETD) for the study, design, systems engineering, development, fabrication, integration, testing, verification, and operation of spaceflight, airborne, and ground system hardware and software, including development and validation of new technologies to enable future space and science missions. SAIC will provide support to the components, subsystems, systems, and instruments for suborbital craft and spacecraft and will perform sustaining engineering, performance assurance, and systems safety.
The OMES II cost-plus fixed-fee contract begins July 1 and ends after June 30, 2022. The work will be performed at the Goddard Space Flight Center.
