WASHINGTON -- NASA has extended the Unified NASA Information
Technology Services, or UNITeS, contract with Science Applications
International Corporation (SAIC) of San Diego. The action is intended
to allow for the completion of recompetition activities for NASA's
Information Technology Infrastructure Integration Program, which
encompasses agency-wide management, integration and delivery of
information technology infrastructure services.

The contract extension provides NASA with agency-wide information
services and integration support for NASA's Integrated Enterprise
Management Program, or IEPM, administered by NASA's Marshall Space
Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. The contract also provides
additional information technology services for the Marshall Center
until such time as follow-on contracts are awarded for these efforts.

The contract modification extends the period of performance by 14
months, including an eight-month base period, valued at approximately
$120 million, followed by six one-month options. The extension began
Dec. 1 and ends Jan. 31, 2011, if all options are exercised.

The UNITeS contract began Jan. 1, 2004. The total value of the UNITeS
contract, including this extension, is approximately $1.31 billion.

Marshall's responsibilities for information technology include
managing software applications, Web/computer server systems,
audio-visual information, telecommunications, information technology
security, information technology procurement, documentation storage
and protection hardware maintenance. Support provided under the
UNITeS contract includes NASA-wide information technology security,
encryption security systems, computer networking and digital imaging.
