NASA’s Langley Research Center

NASA’s Langley Research Center (LaRC) in Hampton, Virginia, was established as the U.S.’s first civilian aeronautical research facility in 1917, and was the initial home of the first astronauts, the Mercury 7. Today, LaRC is working to design and test a new launch abort system for the next generation space capsules. In addition, LaRC researchers are focusing on some of the biggest technical challenges of our time, including global climate change, access to space and revolutionizing airplanes, and the air transportation system.

In October 2010, DB teamed with Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies (SGT), Inc. to provide NASA’s LaRC with computing support services for complex information technology (IT) systems and applications. The five-year maximum value of the LaRC Information Technology Enhanced Services (LITES) task order contract is $183 million.

For the LITES contract, DB provides a variety of support and services for the LaRC Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO). Specifically, DB’s LITES team:

  • Provides business systems application development and operational support, including testing and training.
  • Supports LaRC and NASA with system architecture design, development, implementation, and management.
  • Provides LaRC OCFO Center Business Process Lead (CBPL) support with liaison responsibility to the NASA Enterprise Applications Competency Center (NEACC).
  • Provides all LaRC Business Readiness needs in support of the NEACC and LaRC CBPL.
  • Provides information delivery support.
  • Creates, advises on, and maintains processes that contribute to and monitor the health of financial information and the underlying financial systems.
  • Ensures that data quality is maintained throughout the key business systems and applications.
