ASRC Federal has won a potential five-year, $319 million contract to help run the IT infrastructure, applications and communications environment of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.
NASA competed the Kennedy Infrastructure, Applications and Communication contract for 8(a) small businesses only. KIAC covers two base years followed by one two-year option and an additional option year.
This award unseats incumbent Abacus Technology Corp., which was awarded the predecessor contract in 2008 for a potential seven-year, $944 million value. NASA has to-date spent approximately $673 million on the KSC Information Management and Communication Support contract, which Deltek says expires on Sept. 30.
The new KIAC contract is NASA’s primary vehicle for contract services in IT infrastructure, applications, communications and multimedia. ASRC Federal will provide its services to users at Kennedy, NASA facilities at the neighboring Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and other locations.
KIAC covers services for both NASA and the Defense Department. The space agency envisions the contract as beneficiary for other government agencies, contractors, academic organizations, news media organizations and other space-related entities.
