Nichols Research Corporation (NRC) announces contract awards.
NRC was recently awarded a subcontract by AT&T to support the High Performance Computing Modernization (HPCM) Defense Research and Engineering Network (DREN) Inter-site Services Contract (DISC). The DISC contract will have a five-year life cycle ceiling of $430 million with the Department of Defense (DOD).
NRC was also awarded a subcontract by Boeing Information Services to support the Defense Enterprise Integration Services II (DEIS II) Program. Boeing is sharing in this award with five other contractors in the multi-award DEIS II contract which will have a five-year life cycle ceiling of $2.5 billion for the DOD plus $0.5 billion for other federal agencies.
NRC has also received additional technology insertion awards under other HPCM programs for the DOD Major Shared Resource Centers (MSRC). The new contract awards and modifications have an estimated value of $100 million over the next eight years.
Michael J. Mruz, NRC's President and Chief Operating Officer, said he was pleased that the company had gotten off to a fast start on the HPCM programs. "These contract awards are a further reflection of the government's confidence in NRC to provide the best possible solutions and services. The awards are also evidence of NRC's commitment to work with the vendors and the customer to provide the most modern solutions possible and to maintain the premier status of DOD's MSRC sites." He also noted that the DEIS II opportunity "will allow us to apply our proven systems integration skills in broader application areas, both within and outside of DOD."
