NASA Awards Potential $233M IT Contract to Joint Venture
NASA has awarded an information technology solutions contract to a joint venture formed by Banner Quality Management Inc. and Peerless Technologies.
Work will be done under the cost-plus-fixed-fee Professional, Administrative, Computational and Engineering Services contract, which has a maximum value of $233.2 million, NASA said.
The contract has a two-year base period of performance, a two-year option period and a final one-year option. NASA awarded the deal as a small business set-aside.
Under the terms of the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity deal, the BQMI-Peerless joint venture will provide IT solutions and basic services to the Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, the Neil A. Armstrong Test Facility in Sandusky, Ohio, and various other NASA locations.
The Glenn Research Center specializes in designing and developing technologies that can advance NASA’s aeronautics and space exploration missions.
The Neil A. Armstrong Test Facility serves as a remote division of the Glenn Research Center. According to NASA, the division houses four test facilities that perform complex ground tests for the international space community.
The joint venture will fulfill NASA’s institutional, programmatic, research, engineering and facilities IT requirements in line with the agency’s missions. Work will begin on July 1 and end on June 30, 2026, if all options are exercised.
BQMI is an economically disadvantaged women-owned small business that works on NASA contracts for engineering, safety, project management and training program development.
Peerless Technologies is a government and defense contractor that specializes in systems engineering, cybersecurity, program management, IT human performance and medical research.
