Appendix F. Sample Cost/Benefit Impacts

F.1 Impact to Headquarters Responsible Offices:

a. This NPR will require responsible offices to collaborate proposed unfunded mandates with reviewing offices and Centers in an effort to mitigate, resolve, and present unresolved proposed unfunded mandates to the IFRB for resolution in accordance with the Board's process in Appendix G of this NPR. There is a burden of time associated with this requirement for responsible offices and reviewing offices and Centers to collaborate in an effort to resolve unfunded mandates. The benefit of implementing this requirement is to improve the Agency's efforts to resolve identified unresolved UFMs.

b. This NPR will require responsible offices to ensure that their respective DMs and ALRs coordinate so that any information related GAO/OIG recommendations that require revisions be made to Agency-level directives can be captured on the NHQ 184 prior to acceptance in NODIS. There are no costs associated with this requirement, but a minor burden of time applies to confirm that this coordination is completed before approving the NHQ 184. The benefit of implementing this requirement is that it allows for recommendations to revise directives to be identified at the beginning of the coordination process, thereby allowing outstanding recommendations to be closed sooner.

c. This NPR will allow responsible offices to coordinate directives that have changes that are minor with small portions of these documents to be changed to be reviewed in a shortened review in NODIS. However, they will be required to meet specific criteria before these directives are accepted in NODIS for a shortened review. There is a self-imposed burden of time on responsible offices if they choose shortened reviews as they will be required to expedite their dispositions on comments from reviewing offices and Centers, however, extensions can be granted. The benefit of allowing shortened reviews is to enable governing directives (e.g., NPD 1000.3, The NASA Organization) to be properly vetted, approved, and published in NODIS in a shorter timeframe in order to meet internal/external requirements and to also allow directives that have changes that are minor with small portions of the document being changed to be vetted in a shortened review.

d. This NPR will require responsible office officials to sign their respective Agency-level directives packages once, that is prior to being forwarded for final approval. The current process involves two signatures on NPRs by responsible officials, one after the review is complete and one after final approval. There is no cost or burden to implement this requirement. The benefit of requiring one signature streamlines the approval process and expedites publication.

F.2 Impact to Reviewing Offices and Centers:

a. This NPR will require reviewing offices and Centers to collaborate proposed unfunded mandates with responsible offices. There is a burden of time associated with this requirement for reviewing offices and Centers and responsible offices to collaborate in an effort to resolve unfunded mandates. The benefit of implementing this requirement is to improve the Agency's efforts to resolve identified unresolved UFMs.

b. This NPR will require reviewing offices and Centers to respond to shortened reviews for Agency-level directives. There is anticipated burden of time associated with this requirement because of the shortened reviews, but extensions can be granted.

F.3 Impact to Agency DMs and ALRs:

This NPR will require Headquarters Offices' and Centers' DMs to consult their respective ALRs in order to acquire information related GAO/OIG recommendations that impact revisions to Agency-level and Center-level directives so that this information can be captured when these revisions are initially proposed. There are no costs associated with this requirement, but there is a minor burden of time on DMs to request this information from the ALRs and for the ALR to submit it. The benefit of implementing this requirement is that it allows GAO/OIG recommendations that impact revisions directives to be identified at the beginning of the coordination process, thereby allowing outstanding recommendations to be closed sooner.

F.4 Impact to the IFRB:

This NPR will require the IFRB to examine unresolved UFMs that cannot be resolved between the responsible office and the reviewing offices and Centers, and to elevate theses mandates to the MSC if no resolution is reached. While there is the burden of time to examine unresolved UFMs, the benefit implementing this requirement is to improve the Agency's effort to resolve identified unresolved UFMs.

F.5 Impact to the MSC:

This NPR will require the MSC to examine and resolve unresolved UFMs that cannot be resolved in the IFRB process. For unresolved UFMs that do not fall under the purview of the MSC, the MSC will direct to the appropriate Agency council (e.g., APMC, EC) for resolution. While there is the burden of time to examine and unresolved UFMs, the benefit implementing this requirement is to improve the Agency's effort to resolve identified unresolved UFMs.

F.6 Impact to the OICMS:

The NPR will require OICMS to adjust suspense dates in NODIS for proposed directives if identified unfunded mandates require additional time for mitigation and resolution in accordance with the IFRB process in Appendix G.
