NASA Awards Propellants and Life Support Services Contract

NASA has awarded a contract to AECOM Management Services Inc. of Germantown, Maryland, to support the agency’s need for propellants and life support services for NASA and NASA-sponsored payloads. As a multi-user spaceport for launches of government and commercial spaceflights, NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida and nearby Cape Canaveral Air Force Station have a recurrent need for propellants and life support services.

The Kennedy Space Center Propellants and Life Support Services II (KPLSS II) contract is a fixed-price indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, with an award-term incentive. The maximum potential value of the contract is $165 million.

The contract has a three-month phase-in period that begins July 1, 2020, followed by a two-year base period from Oct. 1, 2020, through Sept. 30, 2022. A two-year option period and six one-year award term periods are available which will bring the total potential period of performance to 10 years.

The KPLSS II contract serves a critical role in supporting launch operational requirements by providing propellants and life support operations, maintenance, and engineering support for assigned systems and equipment.

Work performed under the KPLSS II contract will include manufacturing, processing, and hands-on, day-to-day distribution of hazardous, high-pressure gases, cryogenic fluids, hypergols, and other material to spaceport customers. It also will provide critical life support services to spaceport customers working in toxic or oxygen deficient environments, as well as operations, maintenance, and engineering of facilities systems, equipment, and utilities. AECOM also will provide project management and design engineering services.
