NASA Awards Agency-Wide Mission Network Services Contract

NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., has award AT&T of Vienna, Va., a contract to provide Mission Network Services for the agency.

The contract has a one-year, two-month base period, followed by three two-year options that may be exercised at NASA's discretion. It is a firm-fixed price contract with a value of approximately $87 million, if all options are exercised.

Under the contract, AT&T will provide resources necessary to perform NASA's Mission Network requirements at domestic and overseas locations for agency projects and missions.

The contract is a follow-on effort for NASA's agency-wide Mission Network Services, which was awarded under the General Services Administration's Federal Technology Services (FTS) 2001 contract. These services are being transitioned from the GSA FTS 2001 contract to the newly awarded GSA Networx Universal contract.
