ANNOUNCEMENT

Message to KLXS II Incumbent Employees

Late yesterday (August 26th) our KLXS III transition hit a speedbump as we learned a protest was filed.  While that is not welcome news, we recognize protests are an important provision of government procurement process and will support NASA and/or the GAO as they perform additional assessment work.

While this limits our government interaction until the protest is resolved, we are able to continue internal work on our phase in activities.  To ensure we are well prepared upon a new award, we will continue work on several long lead activities.  This will ultimately reduce transition risk and help ensure you have a seamless transition when the time comes.

We will provide occasional status messages via this webpage to ensure you stay appraised of any important developments.  Our HR rep, with whom you may have already communicated, will contact you with any additional questions that may support our internal transition activities.
