MCLEAN, Va., June 24 (UPI) -- The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has tapped U.S. defense contractor SAIC for safety and mission assurance engineering support services.

The services -- to be performed at Johnson Space Center in Texas and the White Sands Test Facility in New Mexico -- come under a single-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with a base performance period of three years with two one-year options.

The contract's value to Science Applications International Corp. of Tysons Corner, Va., carries a value of $202 million if all options are exercised.

"We are honored to continue our support to NASA's critical safety and mission assurance function at the Johnson Space Center," said Dan Harris, SAIC customer group senior vice president. "SAIC is committed to providing NASA with the expertise needed to keep our astronauts safe, while preparing for the next chapter in human space flight."

Under the contract, the company will support the safety and mission assurance directorate in providing programmatic support to the International Space Station, Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, Extravehicular Activity Office, Advanced Exploration Systems Office, and any future programs and projects performed by the Johnson Space Center. It also will support programs connected with safety, reliability, maintainability, quality and risk management at Johnson and the White Sands.
