The Government Accountability Office has denied a protest of NASA‘s potential 10-year, $1.2 billion contract awarded in July to a joint venture of PAE and BWXT.
Representatives from NASA and PAE have confirmed to GovCon Wire the contract with Syncom Space Services has been re-initiated.
GAO will post its decision after it redacts some information as the protest is under a protective order.
S3 will help NASA manage facility operations, maintenance requirements and test and manufacturing services at Stennis Space Center in Mississippi and Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans under the Synergy Achieving Consolidated Operations and Maintenance program.
The contract contains a one-year base period and seven option periods that total nine years and five months.
