NASA awarded a $2.5 billion contract for enterprise IT and telecommunications services to Leidos, the agency announced Friday.

The 10-year Advanced Enterprise Global IT Solutions (AEGIS) contract covers cloud and data center solutions across all NASA centers and facilities.

AEGIS replaces the NASA Integrated Communications Services (NICS) contract and will ensure that wide-area and local-area network infrastructure connects seamlessly and securely.

NASA’s Office of the Chief Information Officer manages the contract and will use it to support the agency’s collaboration tools, emergency and early warning systems, telephones, cable and radio systems to further aeronautics, space exploration, scientific research and technology development.


Both fixed price and indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity services are offered through AEGIS, which takes effect Sept. 1.

Leidos already does a significant amount of work with NASA around IT systems design.
