Lockheed Martin to Prime NISC III
NISC-III is a follow-on contract that will provide continued support for transition, integration, and implementation of selected FAA national airspace system (NAS) modernization and NAS support programs, including the Capital Investment Plan (CIP) and successor plans.
The task order, cost-plus-award-fee contract starts with a 4-year base award valued at $500 million, but the 10-year award is worth nearly $1.4 billion provided all options are exercised. Lockheed Martin was the incumbent vendor supporting the FAA's NISC II contract.
NISC provides services and integration planning for equipment and infrastructure improvements for NAS modernization. NISC task orders enable quick access to an array of experts with high-level technical, engineering and information technology capabilities where FAA needs to implement or integrate equipment, components or related capital projects.
Broad in scope, the NISC III contract provides critical technical and planning assistance to a wide range of FAA organizations across multiple functional areas. These functional areas represent a diverse set of work activities requiring a broad range of labor categories and skill levels within each labor category.
