NASA awards support services contract

The U.S. space agency says it has awarded a safety and mission services contract to the Safety and Quality Assurance Alliance of Cleveland.

The $33 million contract, to take effect June 23, is for services at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va. The base contract covers 23 months and has three one-year options.

The contractor will support all of the programs and activities necessary to provide a safe environment for Langley's workforce, NASA said. Safety and mission assurance support services will cover Langley's aeronautical and spaceflight projects, as well as quality assurance activities associated with the design, fabrication, assembly, test, delivery of spaceflight-quality hardware, and material testing functions within the Materials and Quality Assurance Laboratory.

The company is a joint venture with N&R Engineering and Mainthia Technologies Inc., both of Cleveland.
