NASA seeks 8(a) bids for potential $100M headquarters IT contract

NASA has kicked off the bidding on a potential five-year, $100 million contract for IT services at the agency's headquarters in Washington.

Only small businesses with the 8(a) designation are eligible to compete for the the Headquarters Information Technology Support Services III contract. The agency posted a request for proposals on July 18 and responses are due Aug. 18.

A selected contractor will provide integrated IT, systems engineering, operations and IT-related management support services mission directorates and mission support offices at NASA's headquarters. The solicitation also calls for management of a cloud infrastructure program in a managed computing environment at headquarters.

HITSS III has one base year with four one-year options and is the successor contract to HITSS II won by Digital Management Inc. in 2012. Media Fusion Inc. also is an incumbent contractor through a task order awarded against a GSA Schedule contract, according to Deltek.

HITSS II expires on Sept. 30 and has a potential five-year value of $177 million. Deltek estimates NASA has spent approximately $145 million over that contract's lifespan.
