WASHINGTON -- NASA has awarded a contract to Science Systems and
Applications, Inc. (SSAI) of Lanham, Md., for the Global Modeling and
Assimilation Office (GMAO) scientific support services. The estimated
maximum ordering value of this letter contract is $47 million,
effective Feb. 1, 2012, and ending Jan. 31, 2017.

GMAO develops and uses comprehensive global models and data
assimilation systems to study land surface, the atmosphere and its
components, and ocean biology. This contract supports projects in
three areas within GMAO, encompassing all aspects of the development,
operation, and maintenance of modeling, assimilation and forecast
systems. This includes support for scientific research and
development, project management, and the development and maintenance
of operational capabilities. Most tasks involve the development or
