NASA Extends CSC Operations Contract

Computer Sciences Corporation today announced that their operations and support contract at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing Center at the Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California has been extended by a one year option period.  The extension is valued at roughly $57 million.

The option exercised on the cost-plus-award-fee contract begins April 1, 2010, and will continue to March 31, 2011. The contract consists of a two-year base period and eight one-year priced options with a maximum value of approximately $597 million if all options are exercised.

The contract is structured such that CSC may also provide services and support to the NASA Center for Computational Sciences facility at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., and additional high performance computing support to other agency field centers as needed.
