Preface


P.1 PURPOSE

This document provides guidance for implementing the processes, requirements, and responsibilities of NPD 7500.2, NASA Technology Commercialization Policy. As such, it directly supports the technology transfer and commercialization mission in the NASA Strategic Plan (NPD 1000.1).

P.2 APPLICABILITY AND SCOPE

P.2.1 This NASA Procedural Requirements document applies to all NASA programs and projects established to Provide Aerospace Products and Capabilities (PAPAC) and Generate Knowledge (GK) as defined in NPR 7120.5, whose existing or planned technological assets (technologies, innovations, facilities, and expertise) may have commercial application and/or benefit. Each NASA Strategic Enterprise is responsible for technology transfer and commercialization as it relates to that Enterprise's programs and projects, as required by NPD 7500.2, Section 5b. Technology transfer and commercialization responsibilities of each NASA Strategic Enterprise and each Center apply whether its programs and projects are performed by NASA personnel or by NASA contractors or funding recipients. As such, this NPR applies to NASA Headquarters and NASA Centers, including Component Facilities, and to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to the extent specified in their contract.

P.2.2 This NPR is consistent with the technology transfer and commercialization elements in NPR 7120.5 and applies to all NASA programs and projects as defined in NPR 7120.5.

P.2.3 The NASA Technology Commercialization Policy, NPD 7500.2, and the present document rank first and second respectively in order of precedence for managing NASA's technology commercialization processes except if in conflict with statutory or regulatory requirements.
