NASA Issues Helium Supply RFP

ContractNASA has started accepting proposals from contractors to supply helium at agency-run flight and research centers for a period of up to five years.

The contract contains a two-year base period and three option years that could extend work through Sept. 30, 2019, NASA said in an Aug. 8 FedBizOpps notice.

Helium would be delivered at several NASA facilities, including the Ames Research Center, Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Marshall Space Flight Center.

The agency says it consumes almost 75 million cubic feet of helium in both liquid and gas forms each year.
