The Tennessee-based firm will serve the agency’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, other NASA centres, and government agencies under the contract
The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has awarded a contract with a potential value of up to $3.9bn to Jacobs Technology to deliver engineering and scientific products, technical services, and related services.
Under the JSC Engineering, Technology, and Science (JETS) II contract, the Tennessee-based firm will cater to the agency’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, other NASA centres, as well as government agencies.
The potential base value of the cost-plus award-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract is $1.8bn.
The JETS II award comes with an option of converting to a cost-plus fixed-fee contract along with the ability to issue firm-fixed-price task orders.
According to NASA, the contract starts on 1 October 2022 with a base period of five years. It will be followed by two option periods each of two years, and a one-year option period, which takes the potential value of the contract to $3.9bn.
The total potential performance period of Jacobs Technology’s JETS II contract is 10 years.
As per the scope of work, Jacobs Technology will provide engineering design, development, analysis, sustaining engineering, assessment, test services, technology development, and laboratory/facility operation and maintenance for Johnson’s Engineering Directorate.
Furthermore, the company will be responsible for planetary mission, astromaterial curation, and physical science research, and laboratory/facility operation and maintenance for Johnson’s Exploration Integration and Science Directorate.
Jacobs Technology will also provide engineering and related services for other NASA centres and government agencies under the same contract.
Recently, NASA selected Vanguard Pacific for the facilities engineering design and inspection services (FEDIS) II contract. Under the contract, Vanguard Pacific will be responsible for delivering architect and engineering design services at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama.
