Office of Procurement

NASA/ARC in collaboration with, and support of, the Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) office intends to extend contracts under the Modular Space Vehicle (MSV) multiple award IDIQ contracts NNA11AA01B (ATK Space systems), NNA11AA02B (Miltec), NNA11AA03B (Northrop Grumman), NNA11AA04B (PnP innovations), and NNA11AA05B (Sierra Nevada Corporation), on a sole-source basis pursuant to 10 U.S.C 2304(c) (1), Only One Responsible Source or a limited number of sources. Under MSV the period of performance will be extended by two years through November 9, 2017. The MSV procurement is a multiple award IDIQ Cost-Plus-Fixed-Fee (CPFF) and Cost-Plus-Incentive-Fee (CPIF) contract that was awarded to five contractors with the objective task to manage and execute the technical, schedule and cost performance necessary to incorporate and evolve reconfigurable, modular bus and payload architectures that have been under development and transition them into hardware development, demonstration and operations of multi-mission MSV missions to include components, satellite buses, payloads, ground commanding and telemetry, space/ ground components, subsystems and/ or data- handling systems. The architecture developed for these responsive, modular spacecraft was to be designed in such a way as to allow flexibility to meet multiple missions with minimal changes within the basic design. The spacecraft architecture was intended to include multi-mission modular bus and payload designs. The Government does not intend to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12.
