Today's Curious NASA Procurement Item

NASA Award Notice: SFA Promotional Items

"Classification Code: 73 -- Food preparation and serving equipment
Naics Code: 326199 -- All Other Plastics Product Manufacturing
Contract Award Amount: 3831818"

Editor's note: $3,831,818 for SFA (Space Flight Awareness) "Food preparation and serving equipment" !?

Editor's update: According to a reply from the procurement official listed on this notice: "The Post Award Synopsis is being revised today to correct the amount of the award, $38,318.18. The award was for miscellaneous Space Flight Awareness promotional items, Classification code 9999. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.". In addition to this correction for the SFA item, there were four notices with incorrect dollar amounts posted which had to be corrected by JSC Procurement today [1, 2, 3, 4]. You'd think that a little more care would lavished on such things in the first place - not after the fact.
