“Introduction

The purpose of the Mission Enabling Services Contract (MESC) is to provide development, sustainment, and maintenance of specialized and highly specialized mission-enabling applications and services to the JSC Flight Operations Directorate (FOD) and its affiliate organizations. The MESC requirements span the flight support requirements of NASA/JSC for the benefit of its external customers and partners, including, but not limited to, other NASA centers, International Partners, other Government organizations, and affiliated commercial enterprise partners.

The MESC contracting vehicle consists of three parts: two single-award baselines and a multipleaward Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) component. Under the terms of this solicitation, a “baseline” comprises activities that satisfy known, continuous US government requirements that exist independent of another baseline or any task order under the IDIQ vehicle. The two single-award baselines are the following:

  • Baseline A: NASA Aircraft Management Information System (NAMIS) Services
  • Baseline B: Spaceflight Enabling Services (SES)

The multiple-award IDIQ component covers new content within the general scope of the types of work covered by Baseline B where the specific IDIQ tasks are not identified as part of the Baseline B contract scope… Additionally, IDIQ covers advanced research and development technology support.

Contractors for Baseline A, B, and IDIQ shall ensure completion of badging requirements to comply with NASA/JSC IT requirements and systems…”

“1 Baseline A: NAMIS Services

Baseline A provides the requirements for the comprehensive support for the NASA Aircraft Management Information System (NAMIS), an integrated, module-based, custom software suite that supports aircraft flight operations across NASA and other Government Agencies. NAMIS is an Agency-wide system in use by Ames Research Center (ARC), Armstrong Flight Research Center (AFRC), Glenn Research Center (GRC), NASA Headquarters, Johnson Space Center (JSC), Kennedy Space Center (KSC), Langley Research Center (LaRC), Marshall Space Flight Center (MSCF), Stennis Space Center (SSC), and Wallops Flight Facility (WFF). NAMIS is also used by other Government agencies and external organizations…”
