Arlington, VA (November 27, 2019) – After a multi-year delay triggered by incumbent prime contractor protests, the GAO fully denied the latest protest of the award of the GSFC SMAS II contract to Millennium Engineering and Integration Company, and phase-in of this important space mission support contract has begun. Millennium will officially start contract execution on 1 December 2019, and has accelerated the normal 30 day phase-in process to accommodate end-of-contract deadlines for the previous prime contractor. Millennium and its very capable team of corporate partners including SAIC, Booz Allen, Systems Planning and Analysis, Risk Management Corporation, Sage Services, ADS Safety, and AlphaPort will employ systems engineers and technicians in support of GSFC’s 30+ programs and projects developing and implementing unmanned and manned spacecraft and ground support missions. This contract is a 5 year base, no option cost plus fixed fee contract with a maximum ceiling of $185M.
Patrick Murphy, Millennium’s President and Chief Executive Officer said “We are grateful to NASA GSFC for trusting us to be a mission partner via this all-important contract, and we look forward to coming to work every day with the aim of identifying and mitigating hazards and failure modes within the systems that GSFC designs, builds and flies.”
Dan Deans, Millennium EVP and COO added “Millennium has a long history of providing systems and specialty engineering services to NASA’s field centers, and we very excited to work at GSFC and serve so many important spacecraft projects with our skill and knowledge.”
Millennium is opening an office in Greenbelt, MD to support this and other contracts in the vicinity.
