A Maryland company has been awarded a $300 million contract to work with NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Texas on communications and information technology, the agency said.
Rockville, Maryland-based MORI associates will begin the five-year Communications, Outreach, Multimedia and Information Technology contract with JSC on April 1, NASA spokesman Kelly Humphries said.
MORI will provide IT support services for JSC’s Information Resources Directorate and External Relations Office, as well as offer systems engineering; applications development and operation; and database administration. The cost-plus-award-fee, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract has a potential value of $300 million over its five-year life, according to a NASA press release.
“We went through the standard selection process and MORI represented the most value to the government,” Humphries said.
The new contract also covers JSC’s related facilities, such as the Sonny Carter Training Facility in Houston, according to the release.
MORI Associates has also worked for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Department of Defense and the National Institutes of Health.
