WASHINGTON -- NASA has awarded a contract to Millennium Engineering and Integration Company of Arlington, Va., to provide range and institutional safety support at the agency's Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Va. The five-year contract is worth as much as $25 million.

Institutional safety ensures compliance with NASA and Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards related to the operations and construction of new or modified facilities and complex systems. This includes, but is not limited to, fire protection, industrial hygiene, pressure systems, explosives, lifting devices, and emergency preparedness.

Wallops is home to NASA's sounding rockets program office, balloon program office, and aircraft office. The Wallops Research Range provides support to these organizations and other NASA programs, federal agencies, commercial entities and academia. Missions are executed at Wallops and locations around the world.
