NanoRacks awarded GSA Schedule contract for in-space services
NanoRacks of Colorado Springs, CO announced on April 16 that the company has been awarded a contract with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Professional Services Schedule. As a services provider under this contract, NanoRacks is able to provide its customer-driven in-space services to federal agencies at a pre-negotiated fixed rate.
NanoRacks, the commercial market leader in low-Earth orbit, is offering its flagship services within the GSA schedule, centered around microgravity research and International Space Station and other launch vehicle-based CubeSat and MicroSat deployment opportunities.
“Our services are unique compared to others offering in-space opportunities on GSA,” says NanoRacks Commerce Director Adrian Mangiuca. “We are offering both microgravity research and satellite deployment opportunities, allowing each agency the flexibility to find a space solution that’s custom to their needs. Whether your government agency requires earth observation, remote sensing, or launch services – we’re ready to provide an optimal solution for you.”
Through this contract, the federal government recognizes NanoRacks, among other organizations on GSA, as a trusted launch services vendor and facilitates a more efficient procurement process. This accelerated procedure saves taxpayer time and money and helps to bring government requirements into space cost-effectively. In addition to increasing procurement efficiency, the GSA schedule acts to harmonize and secure full compliance with all Federal Acquisition Regulations.
