Jacobs wins $1.1B NASA engineering, scientific support contract

Jacobs Engineering Group has won a potential eight-year, $1.1 billion contract to continue its engineering and scientific support services work for NASA at the agency's Marshall Space Flight Center and Michoud Assembly Facility.

The new Engineering Services and Science Capability Augmentation contract goes into effect Dec. 1 and includes a four-year base period followed by a pair of two-year options.

ESSCA is the successor to the predecessor Engineering and Science Services and Skills Augmentation contract won by Jacobs in 2012. NASA has obligated nearly 86 percent of the contract's estimated $789 million ceiling value since award, according to Deltek.

Contract work at Marshall in Huntsville, Ala. and Michoud in New Orleans will support engineers, scientists and technicians in their efforts to design, analyze, develop and test hardware.

NASA aims to further optimize and cultivate its manufacturing and material processes. The contract also covers support to the Defense Department and other government, commercial or educational organizations.

This is Jacobs' second contract win north of $1 billion so far in August. Jacobs unseated incumbent Northrop Grumman for a potential eight-year, $4.6 billion research-and-development and IT services contract with the Missile Defense Agency.
