Barrios CEO Sandy Johnson

NASA’s Johnson Space Center has awarded the Human Space Flight Technical Integration Contract to Barrios Technology Ltd. of Houston signaling a continued partnership between the space agency and the aerospace technology company.

The cost-plus-award-fee, incentive-fee contract, starting Oct. 1, has a potential value of $364 million. The base period of the contract is two-years followed by three additional one-year options that may be exercised at NASA’s discretion. A Program Planning and Control option includes a one-year base period followed by four one-year options.

“We are thrilled to build on our four-decade legacy of supporting NASA’s Human Spaceflight Programs through the award of contract.  This award is a reflection of the great work of all our employees. It allows us to continue to support NASA’s ISS Program, as well as grow our support to the Artemis Program to explore beyond low earth orbit,” Barrios Technology CEO Sandy Johnson said.

The contract provides products and services to support mission and program technical integration activities and the necessary infrastructure functions for the International Space Station, Orion, and Gateway programs, with the potential for supporting additional human spaceflight programs or projects by issuing task orders. Barrios will utilize the existing incumbent workforce to support the contract objectives at Johnson with ARES Technical Services Corp., Booz Allen Hamilton, Intuitive Machines, and Summit Technologies & Solutions as subcontractors.
