NASA NASA announced Monday that it has selected the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi as the home of a new backoffice for the space agency. NASA said it selected a bid from Computer Sciences Corporation to operate the Shared Services Center, a new 500-person office that will consolidate procurement, human relations, and other administrative activities for the agency and its field centers. CSC's bid featured establishing the center at Stennis; the low labor costs in southern Mississippi apparently were a key factor in the bid's selection. Stennis beat out bids from Huntsville, Alabama and Cleveland for the facility. The center's operation will be phased in starting this year through 2008.
