WASHINGTON, Aug. 4 (UPI) -- The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration has awarded an advanced planning assessment contract to Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. of McLean, Va.

The three-year, fixed-price contract has a maximum value of $30 million with two one-year options. The agreement is a follow-on to an earlier contract, with work being performed at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, NASA said.

"Booz Allen Hamilton will give independent programmatic and institutional assessment capability support to Johnson's Advanced Planning Office," the space agency said. "It will provide reviews and assessments of tactical and strategic planning efforts and make independent assessments of cost, schedule, technical risk, safety and mission assurance. Its assessments will include Johnson programs and projects, and center-wide and NASA-wide institutional support activities."

A major subcontractor involved in the contract is the Raytheon Technical Services Co. of Webster, Texas.
