NASA Awards Safety, Mission Assurance Support Services Contract

NASA has awarded a contract to Alphaport Inc., of Cleveland, for safety and mission assurance support services at its Kennedy Space Center in Florida, Headquarters in Washington and other sites supported by Kennedy programs and projects.

The Safety and Mission Assurance Support Services (SMASS) III contract is cost-plus-fixed-fee and has a two-year base period and three one-year options, with a maximum potential value of $47.5 million.

Customers under the SMASS III contract include NASA’s Ground Systems Development and Operations, Commercial Crew Program, Launch Services Program, International Space Station, and Agency Management and Operations (AMO), including Range Safety, Independent Assessment, Metrology and Calibration, and Expendable Launch Vehicle Payload Safety. Safety, quality, and mission assurance service will be accomplished through performance of activities such as risk assessments, inspections, investigations, engineering analyses, and evaluations of work performed by other contractors and NASA organizations.

Kennedy has transformed into a multi-user spaceport to support both government and commercial customers. Its dynamic infrastructure is designed to host many kinds of spacecraft and rockets sending people on America’s next adventures in space – to an asteroid, Mars and other destinations in our solar system.
