On October 28, 2010, NASA awarded the Enterprise Applications Service Technologies (EAST) contract to SAIC. As a subcontractor, Oakwood had to submit a proposal to NASA through SAIC. With much prayer, diligence and hard work, Oakwood’s proposal was accepted! Under the contract, SAIC will be responsible for providing all services necessary to operate and maintain NASA's set of integrated enterprise application systems supporting all ten NASA field centers. Oakwood will benefit by the placement of student interns, and will have the opportunity to hire employees and consultants through the contract.
There will be a two-year base period, followed by one two-year option and one one-year option that may be exercised at NASA's discretion. It is a firm-fixed price contract, with an indefinite delivery and indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) feature. The base award of this contract is $85.6 million. If all options are exercised, the maximum potential value of the contract, including the maximum ID/IQ value, is $321.2 million! Under the base award, Oakwood will see a profit of more than $5 million dollars! This contract will go into effect February 1, 2011.
Congratulations Oakwood University!
