    • Cathy Claunch Sid SchmidtPM Challenge February, 2011
    •  Need to balance Agency portfolio within tight budgets ◦ Successful Programs ◦ Robust Institutional Base Are they really competing priorities? Is a competitive environment healthy? Can the Agency succeed with one or the other? 2
    • 11/12/2010 report from the Inspector General listed “Infrastructure and Facilities Management” as a top Agency challenge.“NASA is the ninth largest Federal Government property holder, controlling a network of approximately 5,400 buildings and structures that support Agency research, development, and flight activities. NASA’sability to effectively manage the necessary maintenance and renovation of this large and aging portfolio of facilities is a critical challenge facing the Agency.” 3
    •  Can the budget process help bridge the apparent competition for scarce resources? What is the content of these two budgets? What activities are underway to improve these efforts? How are these two entities linked? Can the synergy be improved? 4
    •  Lengthy budget formulation process Small window of time for integration of program and institution budgets 6

    • Profiles Vary Widely By CenterFY 2004 Center G&A – with CoF • Focus on budget year knowing that out-year budgets could be adjusted inFY 2005 Center G&A – no CoF next cycle • Some Centers anticipating reduced workforceFY 2006 Center G&A Profiles Vary Widely By Center CMO - Center G&A,FY 2007 Facilities & IT Service Pools, Eng & SMA Existing G&A Out-yr budgets Technical Authority transferred to CMO as fixed budgetFY 2008 CMO – Added Indirect portion of remaining Service Pools Profiles Consistent Across Agency • Reallocated budget amongFY 2009 CMO Centers •Reallocated some funds (FY09) from Corporate G&A 16

    •  Goal: ◦ Define content of Center Management & Ops budget for ease of explanation to stakeholders ◦ Minimize or eliminate the variation in service levels provided across the Agency ◦ Minimize or eliminate variation in charging practices Conclusions ◦ City Management functions – goals met ◦ Technical Capability functions – more work to be done 18
    •  Began as review of facilities require decision as Shuttle Program ended ◦ Continue operations – fund with next Program with requirement? Mothball – until needed by future Program? Abandon – not needed in foreseeable future? Acknowledges need to maintain minimum critical skills for the Agency during a changing environment Review of all facilities and technical capabilities – focus is Human Spaceflight (ESMD/SOMD) ◦ What will be needed by future programs? Excellent example of ongoing debate that links infrastructure, capabilities, and Programmatic requirements 19
    •  NASA Agency management proposed that a process be instituted to manage Agency strategic capabilities as corporate portfolios ◦ Study underway ◦ Promotes increased collaboration across NASA 20
    •  Mission Directorate example Center example Civil Service budgeting 22
    •  A healthy institutional base enables Programmatic success Tension between two competing budget entities can be healthy – if kept in check Real-life budget pressures require both to be efficiently managed 24
