Feb. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. beat Lockheed Martin Corp. to retain its biggest U.S. government contract, an agreement with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration valued at as much as $1.93 billion.

The award is for engineering and technology work at Johnson Space Center in Houston, NASA said today in a statement. It is for a maximum of nine years.

Jacobs, based in Pasadena, California, has held the contract since at least 2004, according to a NASA statement.

Michelle Jones, a spokeswoman for Jacobs, didn’t immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Bethesda, Maryland-based Lockheed bid on the contract and doesn’t plan to protest NASA’s decision, Lindsay Wilson, a company spokeswoman, said in an e-mail.

“Although we are disappointed with the decision, Lockheed Martin remains committed to delivering critical capabilities for NASA,” she said.
