1. POLICY

NASA's policy is that each Center prepare and maintain a Center Real Property Master Plan (CMP). A CMP is the Center's statement of its concept for the orderly management and future development of the Center's real property assets, including land, buildings, physical resources, and infrastructure. It is the overall plan for Center development. It provides a narrative, statistical, and graphic record of current capabilities and conditions (natural features, buildings, structures, utilities, transportation systems, and other improvements), as well as proposed conceptual capabilities necessary to support program and institutional requirements and NASA's strategic and business planning. It includes a Capital Improvement Program Plan projecting the cost and schedule of planned implementation. The CMP is integrated with and supports NASA's Strategic Plan, Mission Directorate strategies, NASA's Real Property Strategic Plan, and Center strategies. The CMP is prepared in accordance with applicable NASA-implementing requirements and other planning processes, including environmental planning. The CMP complies with requirements established by pertinent statutes and regulations, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) circulars, Executive orders, and Agency directives and guidance.
