NASA taps SAIC for agencywide enterprise app management
NASA has contracted with Science Applications International Corp. to provide services to operate the NASA Enterprise Applications Competency Center. Based in Huntsville, Ala., NEACC manages key business and mission-supporting platforms, applications and infrastructure used across the agency.
According to the contract’s original statement of work, NASA requires a seamless technical IT infrastructure to ensure interoperability both within programs and across its centers and facilities in support of collaboration and secure and cost-effective IT service delivery. The Enterprise Applications Service Technologies (EAST) 2 contract supports enterprise applications, such as financial, human capital, logistics and procurement; center-specific applications; cross-functional infrastructure services, such as business intelligence; and support of the Center for Internal Mobile Applications.
EAST 2 is potentially worth $485 million over eight years. Included in the award is an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity feature to provide application service support to additional NASA centers.
SAIC is currently providing support to the NEACC under a $321.2 million EAST contract that is set to expire on Jan. 31. The new contract will begin on Feb. 1 and could run through March 2024.
