In February, ValidaTek, as part of the Leidos team, was awarded the NASA End-user Services & Technologies (NEST) contract. This contract provides all end-user IT services to support NASA’s headquarters, centers and other performance sites. ValidaTek expects work to begin in mid-May and will primarily be involved at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt and NASA headquarters in Washington, DC.
NASA personnel use IT to support the agency’s core business, scientific, research and computational activities. Our team will provide, manage, secure and maintain these essential IT services for the agency. The NEST contract will establish a long-term outsourcing arrangement with the commercial sector to provide and manage most of NASA’s personal computing hardware, agency standard software, mobile IT services, peripherals and accessories, associated end-user services and supporting infrastructure.
Services provided under the NEST contract will be managed by the End-User Services Program Office at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. The NASA Shared Service Center (NSSC) will administer the NEST contract. The NSSC performs select business activities for all NASA centers in financial management, human resources, enterprise IT, procurement and business support services.
