Intellisource wins ODIN deal

NASA on Thursday awarded the latest Outsourcing Desktop Initiative for NASA

contract to Intellisource.

The company will provide services for the agency's final four centers to make the transition to outsourcing: Langley Research Center, Glenn Research Center, Dryden Flight Research Center and Ames Research Center.
