Perot Systems Government Services Inc. will provide integrated infrastructure and information technology support to NASA under a contract worth a potential $77 million.
The follow-on contract calls for Perot Systems GS to continue its support of the Ames Consolidated Information Technology center in Mountain View, Calif., company officials said.
The contractor has been supporting NASA Ames, one of NASA's five research centers, for the past five years. The company has 205 employees in the Silicon Valley area assigned to the contract work at NASA Ames, where hundreds of researchers, scientists and engineers support NASA science missions, including space shuttle launches, satellite launches and space station programs.
"The systems we support at NASA Ames are important for both NASA's mission-critical work and for the future of space discovery," said Lee Carrick, president of Perot Systems Government Services.
Perot Systems Government Services' parent company Perot Systems Inc., of Plano, Texas, ranks No. 41
on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
