Kathryn Hambleton: NASA to Award ISS Cargo Resupply Service Contracts Jan. 30


International-Space-StationNASA has rescheduled the awarding of a new series of contracts to transport supplies to and from the International Space Station, Reuters reported Thursday.

The agency was previously scheduled to name winners for its Commercial Resupply Services 2 competition Thursday and now expects to hand down a decision Jan. 30, 2016, according to the report by Irene Klotz.

Kathryn Hambleton, a NASA spokesperson, told Reuters the agency pushed backed the contract award in order to give evaluators more time to review proposals for the program.

Klotz writes Boeing (NYSE: BA) has been dropped from the list of CRS-2 contract bidders.

NASA ruled a submission from Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) out of the competition last month, citing cost concerns.

Orbital ATK (NYSE: OA) and Sierra Nevada confirmed they are still in the running for the multibillion program, while SpaceX declined to comment on its status in the competition, Klotz said.
