  • 1. Preparing for Facilities Readiness Stephen Rider, P.E. Facilities Program Engineer
  • 2. NASA Mission: To pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery, and aeronautics research. NASA’s Strategic Goals1. Fly the Shuttle as safely as possible until its retirement, no later than 2010.2. Complete the International Space Station in a manner consistent with NASA’s International Partner commitments and the needs of human exploration.3. Develop a balanced overall program of science, exploration, and aeronautics consistent with the redirection of the human spaceflight program to focus on exploration.4. Bring a new Crew Exploration Vehicle into service as soon as possible after Shuttle retirement.5. Encourage the pursuit of appropriate partnerships with the emerging commercial space sector.6. Establish a lunar return program having the maximum possible utility for later missions to Mars and other destinations. 2

  • 6. Real Property Management Plan Goals1. Identify and address real property requirements as an integral part of Agency, Mission Directorate, program, and project planning.2. Construct and operate new real property to meet mission requirements only when existing capabilities cannot be effectively used or modified.3. Continually evaluate its real property assets to ensure alignment with the NASA Mission.4. Leverage its real property to its maximum potential.5. Sustain, revitalize, and modernize its real property required by the NASA Mission. 6
  • 7. Real Property• Definition: land, buildings, structures, utilities systems, and improvements and appurtenances thereto, permanently annexed to land – Includes collateral equipment • Building-type equipment, built-in equipment, and large, substantially affixed equipment normally acquired and installed as a part of a facility project 7
  • 8. CoF Program Purpose• Acquire, repair, modify, and/or construct real property to support and accomplish NASA’s missions• Comply with Public Laws – National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958 – Appropriation Act – Authorization Act – Executive Orders 8
  • 9. Facilities Strategy• Facilities supporting the mission: – Invest in facility maintenance, repair, replacement – Invest in sustainable operations, design and construction techniques when economically justified• And the others: – Eliminate • Demolition Program • Other real property solutions (transfer, excess) 9

  • 13. National Aeronautics And Space Act• Authorization* – TITLE II, Section 203, (c), (3) • Authorizes construction, improvements, for laboratories, research & testing sites & facilities as deemed necessary• IMPACT: NASA can acquire, construct and repair real property without going through GSA (or any other Agency).* Authorization - is a legislative act authorizing money to be spent for government programs that specifies a maximum spending level without provision for actual funds. 13
  • 14. National Aeronautics And Space Act• Appropriations – Title III, Section 310, (a) • nothing in this Act shall authorize the appropriation of any amount for (1) the acquisition or condemnation of any real property, or (2) any other item of a capital nature (such as plant or facility acquisition, construction, or expansion) which exceeds $250,000. – Impact: All of our CoF appropriations come to us through public laws (i.e. President’s Budget and Congress) 14

NPR 8820.2E may still be in effect. 16
  • 17. CoF and NPR 7120.5 Series• NPR 7120.X Series refers to NPR 8820.2 – For CoF processes and facility project requirements• NPR 8820.2 refers to NPR 7120.5D • When a facility project is also a project per NPR 7120.5D, both policies apply – No duplication of effort is required, but elements from both documents must be met 17
  • 18. SYSTEMS ENGINEERING NPR 7123.1• Application of this NPR to Construction of Facilities (CoF) – Scaled to level of systems engineering for function of structure – Documented in systems engineering management plan (SEMP) (as required) – Refers to NPR 8820.2 for CoF engineering requirements• NPR 8820.2 refers to NPR 7123.1 18
  • 19. CoF Project Types• Institutional (Prioritized Agencywide): – Common use facilities, such as primary utility distribution systems, general administrative buildings, roads, parking lots, and quality of life facilities• Program Direct (Prioritized within each Program): – Facilities required to satisfy Program specific requirements/capabilities (e.g. test facilities, labs, R&D) 19

CoF Funding Rules Outside of the Normal Budget Process• Upward variations into the CoF Program (Institutional Investment) – Limited to 10% of the appropriated programs affected or $750,000 whichever is less• Operating Plan Changes – Any project change in excess of the upward variation rules 25
  • 26. Recommendations• New capabilities – *Notify Facilities Organization (Center or HQ) as early as possible to get your facility needs into the budget• Existing Capabilities – *Ensure the Center Facilities Organization is aware of your need for the facility• Fully define your facility requirements – Schedule, Cost, and Scope *Note: Even if you don’t know your complete facility requirements yet. 26

  • 39. FY 07 PPBES CoF Prioritization• Uses a Risk Management Approach (5 by 5 Matrix) – Project must be mission related – Probability and Consequences Plotted – Discerning factors delineate between projects with same score• Final prioritization is done by a team made up of members from each Center, Mission Directorates, and Mission Support Offices• Establishes Agency CoF Priorities• CoF Prioritization Timeline – driven by HQ Office of the Chief Financial Officer 39
  • 40. CoF Prioritization Results (FY 09)• Over $174 M was Center Total initially scored as Very ARC 10,140 High Risk (Probability 5, DFRC 8,800 Consequence 5) GRC 10,200• After scrubbing the list, GSFC 10,200 we were able to add in JPL 10,100 some High risk (5,4 or JSC 19,950 4,5) KSC 23,600• Consensus process LaRC 10,200 (using color coded MSFC 14,800 cards) SSC 5,900• Open process with buy in from all Total 123,890 40
  • 41. CoF Demolition Program• Headquarters provides funding – $10M per year, FY04 through FY07; $15 M for FY08 and beyond – Saves costs and improves overall condition by removing unneeded facilities • From NASA’s FY05 Deferred Maintenance Report: “NASA’s aggressive demolition program (in FY04-05), 117 facilities, accounted for a DM reduction of $17 million…$64 million reduction in FY04…$98 M in FY05” – Removes safety and environmental hazards• Demolition also required as part of repair by replacement• Centers also fund demolition projects• Deconstruction techniques are used to offset costs (e.g. salvaging steel and copper) 41
  • 42. Institutional CoF Issues• Significantly under-funded – Recent data call identified $484 M in requirements for FY 2009 consideration through prioritization – $174 M was Very High risk to mission – $97 M was High risk to mission – $124 M available for FY 2009 prioritization• Impact: – Risk to infrastructure will increase (recent incidents of fires at JSC and GRC), increasing risk to mission – Reactive mode for natural/manmade disasters – System failures redirect scarce funds (GRC electrical fire) 42
  • 43. Coming CoF Tools• Building Information Modeling – Software used to model a facility• Facilities Project Management Database – GRC developed – Focus on project execution phases • Design, Construction – May soon be “required” method for receiving CoF funds 43
  • 44. Other Real Property Initiatives• Shared Capabilities Assets Program• Sustainable design and construction• Healthy Buildings (Indoor Air Quality – IAQ)• Construction Safety• Reliability Centered Maintenance• Full Cost Management and use of Working Capital Fund• Integrated Asset Management 44
