NASA Awards $100 Million contract to continue information technology support services
NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Ala., has elected to continue an existing contract with Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), Falls Church, Va., to provide information technology services to Marshall and certain services to all other agency centers and facilities.
The contract-extension modification, valued at $100.6 million, covers the period May 1, 2002, through April 30, 2003. It continues services under a contract entitled "Program Information Systems Mission Services (PrISMS)," originally awarded to CSC in 1994. A full and open recompetition of the PrISMS effort will also be initiated during this period.
Work performed by CSC and its subcontractors under PrISMS includes support for NASA computer systems, applications software, telephone systems and audio-visual services. It also includes a range of services, including support of information management systems, the NASA Automated Data Processing Consolidation Center at Marshall, and the NASA Incident Response Center.
The extension of this contract brings PrISMS's total value to approximately $1 billion since it was first awarded in 1994.
