Yes. NASA has made an announcement on March 3 of the intent to award to PCI Productions, LLC.
To begin some contract responsibilities on June 1, 2023.
Yes. If you are currently supporting functions that will fall under the NCS contract you will need to go through the hiring process unless you work for a Team Creek company and that company retains the position. The best option is to submit your resume sooner than later as we sort this out. Failure to apply indicates a lack of interest and may have unintended consequences.
A 60-day phase-in period begins on April 2, during whichTeam Creek will conduct its due diligence in researching the current services provided on the various contracts that will ultimately transition to NCS. The period of performance for the contract will begin on June 1. While some work will begin on NCS immediately, the rest will transition to NCS in a “waterfall” timeline over the coming months and years.
The NCS contract broadly provides public affairs and public engagement services – including strategic communications support, engagement, exhibit staffing, etc. It also will include the contracted portion of the Office of Communications’ history, library, and archives work. The vast majority of the agency’s contracted digital and multimedia communications content production work will ultimately be provided by the eMITS (Enterprise Multimedia and Integrated Technical Services) contract, which has yet to be awarded.
NASA OCOMM is tracking a list of contracts and tasks that are set to transition to either NCS or eMITS based on the nature of the work. If your job title matches or is similar to the NCS list of labor and you are supporting a contract that had an original expiration in 2023, please submit your resume and we will sort it out.
Look for follow-up communications very soon from NASA center communications director, and functional lead at Headquarters, as to the timeline of when the services from specific contracts are set to transition.
