To the Moon: NASA Johnson Space Center Awards Jacobs a $478M Contract Extension

As NASA's largest services provider, the contract—valued at more than $1.9 billion total—continues Jacobs' almost 20-year relationship with the NASA space center.

Dallas-headquartered Jacobs’ two-year NASA Johnson Space Center Engineering, Technology, and Science contract extension has a maximum value of $478,400,000, which places the contract’s total value at $1,934,700,000, according to a statement.

Jacobs is NASA’s largest services provider, according to Jacobs Critical Mission Solutions Senior Vice President Steve Arnette, and has had a relationship with the Johnson Space Center (JSC) located in Houston for almost 20 years. 

Through the contract extension, the technology-forward solutions company is expected to continue providing support for NASA JSC’s Engineering Directorate and Exploration, Integration, and Science Directorate. Jacobs will be supporting NASA’s Artemis program to land the first woman and next man on the moon by 2024 through the directorates with integrated engineering design, testing, and verification.

The Orion Crew Capsule, the new Gateway orbital outpost, and a new generation spacesuit are also among the projects Jacobs will be helping with, as well as continuing its support of the International Space Station.

The contract extension covers the period of May 1, 2020, through April 30, 2022. Jacobs plans to continue providing advanced solutions, research and development, and scientific and technical solutions for NASA, which strengthens its goal of creating a more connected and sustainable world.

Jacobs currently has $13 billion in revenue with more than 55,000 employees. The company provides professional services for the government and private sector including consulting, technical, and scientific and project delivery.

Last month, Jacobs signed a $29 million Cybersecurity Support Contract with the United States Patent and Trademark Office to cover all systems in the enterprise IT environment, while focusing on managing and improving the organizational performance of cybersecurity.

During the ongoing pandemic, Jacobs is collaborating with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to create mobile hospitals in “hot zones” nationwide and is working with the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand on healthcare operations.

Senior executives and board members at the Dallas company have also taken 10 percent pay cuts during the COVID-19 crisis to help the company reach a donation goal of $1 million toward coronavirus mitigation.
