NASA Awards $608 Million Contract to PAE-KBR Joint Venture
Houston –(April 29,2019) – NASA recently announced it awarded the Base Operations, Spaceport Services contract at the Kennedy Space Center to the joint venture PAE-SGT Partners LLC, known as PSP. The firm fixed-price contract with a potential value of $608.7 million is for institutional support services at both the Kennedy Space Center and the NASA facilities at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The contract is two years followed by three two-year options. It has cost reimbursable and indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity components.
PAE's CEO John Heller attributes his organization's unique mission suitability as a competitive edge.
"Our continued exemplary performance at the Johnson Space Center as well as our recent performance at Mississippi's Stennis Space Center and the New Orleans's Michoud Assembly facility provided us with unique, proven capabilities to position us to win this contract," Heller said. "The synergy we have with our high-caliber JV partner and our collective proven past performance and relevant experience ensured PSP as the best overall value."
