Booz Allen Hamilton Secures Multi-Million Dollar NASA Contract

Booz Allen Hamilton has been awarded a potential $38 million contract by NASA to manage and run the Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) and related systems, reinforcing the agency's commitment to incident reporting programs. Administered by NASA's Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley, the cost-plus-fixed-fee indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will support the development and strengthening of current and future reporting systems.

The contract, overseen by the Human Systems Integration Division at NASA's Ames Research Center, is a vital step in advancing NASA's incident reporting programs, particularly the Aviation Safety Reporting System and the Confidential Close Call Reporting System (C3RS). Booz Allen Hamilton will play a key role in managing these programs, ensuring their effectiveness and contributing to the enhancement of aviation safety.

Commencing with a 60-day phase-in period on February 9, 2024, the two-year base period of the contract will officially begin on April 9, 2024. The contract includes additional options, comprising a two-year and a one-year extension, ultimately concluding on April 8, 2029. The potential total value of the contract is estimated at $38 million.

NASA Ames Research Center, based in California, oversees the Aviation Safety Reporting System on behalf of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The ASRS collects voluntarily disclosed aviation safety incident and situation reports, alerting the FAA to any associated hazards. Booz Allen Hamilton's involvement in this contract reflects its commitment to supporting NASA's efforts to enhance the safety and reliability of aviation operations.

Additionally, NASA operates the Confidential Close Call Reporting System (C3RS) for the railroad industry. Administered out of Ames Research Center, this system collects and analyzes reports on unsafe conditions or events within the railroad industry, contributing to preventive measures aimed at avoiding severe incidents in the future.

Booz Allen Hamilton, a prominent global consulting firm, will carry out the contract work at its facilities in Sunnyvale, California. The scope of work includes the development and maintenance of voluntary, independent, and confidential incident reporting programs. The firm's expertise in managing complex systems aligns with NASA's mission to continuously improve aviation safety through proactive reporting and preventive measures.

As the two firms collaborate to manage and strengthen incident reporting programs, the contract signifies a crucial step in ensuring the ongoing safety and efficiency of aviation operations, demonstrating the dedication of both entities to fostering a secure and reliable aerospace environment.
