Arlington, Va.-based Millennium Engineering and Integration has won a five-year, $185 million contract to help NASA implement policies for occupational safety and health.
NASA competed the Safety and Mission Assurance Services II contract as a small business set-aside. The contract will support the agency’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.
This award comes almost one month after NASA awarded a separate safety-related contract to Bastion Technologies for up to $267.5 million over eight years. That contract is for work at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and is under protest by A-P-T Research. A decision is anticipated by Sept. 27, according to Deltek.
Millennium’s implementation work at Goddard will cover areas such as systems safety, reliability and risk assessment, mission software and ground systems assurance, quality engineering, systems review, management systems and mission assurance.
NASA anticipates Millennium’s projects will support agency programs such as the James Webb Space Telescope and the Restore-L robotic satellite servicing spacecraft, as well as collaborations with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for the Joint Polar Satellite System-1and Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite programs.
