NASA has awarded a $936 million modification to the prime
contract for the International Space Station. The Boeing Company
will extend station integration and operations work through Dec.
31, 2003, the current period of performance. This work has been
planned and is contained in the budget estimates represented in
the FY 2003 President’s budget.

The eight-year prime International Space Station contract
awarded to Boeing in 1995 covers construction, integration and
operations of the station by Boeing Information, Space and
Defense Systems. The modification brings the total value of the
contract, NAS-15-10000, to $10.7 billion.

Work on the contract will be performed at various Boeing
facilities located in Huntington Beach, Calif; Canoga Park,
Calif; Huntsville, Ala; Orlando, Fla., and Houston, and at a
variety of subcontractor facilities located throughout the
United States.
