NASA long term is to orbit more hardware (like a small ISS) half way down the moon and the moon itself with the orion program. Sure SpaceX and local private contractor can fill in the void to shuttle stuff up and down the ISS meanwhile but I don't think it's NASA's priority. They're looking for the long haul, reliably pushing people, bits and pieces up heavier and further than before.
