Huntsville company lands $271M NASA contract

A Huntsville company has been awarded a $271 million contract to manage communication services for NASA, the space agency announced.

PCI Productions is owned by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians and is an accomplished BBA certified 8(a) support services firm. The company will manage communication services for all agency centers including headquarters, as well as its mission directorates, to enable the widest practicable and appropriate dissemination of NASA information, NASA said in a news release.

“This is one major step in our overall procurement strategy for communications that will allow us to more efficiently and effectively use the amazing capability of NASA communications organizations to connect the world with the agency’s missions,” said Johnny Stephenson, deputy associate administrator for Communications at NASA Headquarters in Washington.

The NASA Communication Services contract is a firm-fixed-price contract with an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity ordering mechanism for obtaining additional services via task orders, the space agency said. The contract period of performance consists of a 16-month base period that begins on June 1, followed by one 20-month option period, and two one-year option periods.

NASA said the potential value of the contract is approximately $217.6 million, which includes the base plus option periods and the maximum IDIQ ordering value of $183 million.

Work will include, but is not limited to, strategic communications, planning, and integration services; stakeholder relations and public engagement support; media relations services; history and archives services; library services; and services in support of Freedom of Information Act requests.
