Jacobs Technology has been selected by NASA to provide a wide range of engineering and scientific support services at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, and the Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans.

The Engineering Services and Science Capability Augmentation (ESSCA) contract is a cost-plus-award fee, indefinite delivery, and indefinite quantity deal with a potential performance period of eight years. It follows on from the efforts of the ESSSA contract and is set to satisfy requirements for engineers, scientists, and engineering technicians at Marshall and Michoud.

This new contract begins on the 1st of December 2017 and includes a four-year base period followed by two two-year options that may be exercised at NASA’s discretion. The maximum potential value of the deal is around $1.1bn, including all options.

Jacobs Technology will provide a huge spectrum of engineering and science disciplines for the purposes of design, analysis, development, and testing. The contract also includes support for NASA activities and other reimbursable work for which Marshall has responsibility, including support to the Department of Defence and other government, educational, or commercial activities.
