IBM’s global services division will handle remote management services, including
help desk and some systems administration support through its Melville, N.Y., center. The
OAO contract will account for 60 percent of the PC seats NASA expects to outsource through
ODIN. The company’s ODIN Alliance team also includes Hewlett-Packard Co. and Siemans
AG of Germany.

NASA last October also awarded a $19.6 million ODIN order to RMS Information Systems
