NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Ala., has elected
to continue an existing contract with Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC),
Falls Church, Va., to provide information technology services to Marshall
and certain services to all other agency centers and facilities.

The contract-extension modification, valued at $100.6 million,
covers the period May 1, 2002, through April 30, 2003. It continues services
under a contract entitled “Program Information Systems Mission Services
(PrISMS),” originally awarded to CSC in 1994. A full and open recompetition
of the PrISMS effort will also be initiated during this period.

Work performed by CSC and its subcontractors under PrISMS includes
support for NASA computer systems, applications software, telephone systems
and audio-visual services. It also includes a range of services, including
support of information management systems, the NASA Automated Data
Processing Consolidation Center at Marshall, and the NASA Incident Response

The extension of this contract brings PrISMS’s total value to
approximately $1 billion since it was first awarded in 1994.
