NASA has extended its Unified NASA Information Technology Services, (UNITeS) contract with Science Applications International Corp. with a total potential value of $62.7 million.

NASA said the contract starts today with an eight-month base period worth up to $36.4 million. It can be extended to March 2012 to hit the full value. SAIC provides agency-wide information services and integration support for the NASA Information Technology Service Network.

The extension also supports the NASA Enterprise Applications Competency Center by providing system administration and mainframe operations administered by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

Marshall's responsibilities for IT include managing software applications, web and computer server systems, audio-visual information, telecommunications, information technology procurement and security, documentation storage, protection hardware maintenance, encryption security systems, computer networking, and digital imaging.

The UNITeS contract began Jan. 1, 2004 and has a total value, including this extension, of approximately $1.4 billion.

SAIC, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 5 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
