All Native Inc., a subsidiary of Ho-Chunk Inc. and based in Winnebago, Neb., has been awarded a five-year contract with a maximum value of $23 million with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center facilities, executive director of business development Joe Harrison said Thursday.
All Native will provide human resources and information technology services, such as hiring, training and technology support, to NASA’s Washington, D.C., headquarters and at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center facilities in Greenbelt, Md., Wallops Island, Va., and New York City. The contract will begin Sept. 1.
Harrison said more than 100 people will eventually be hired starting Aug. 2 to provide services in the Washington, D.C., area. He said it’s possible the contract could be expanded in the future to include more training services to NASA.
