Expiration Date: August 11, 2027
a. It is NASA policy to:
(1) Permit limited acceptable personal use of NASA Government-furnished property (GFP), information technology (IT) equipment, services, and resources (hereinafter referred to as NASA IT) for non-government purposes, when such use does not overburden any of the Agency's IT services and resources and when access to these IT services and resources does not interfere with official Government business. GFP includes NASA assets, including all devices and equipment. The intent of limited acceptable personal use is to provide a professional and supportive work environment while meeting taxpayer expectations that tax dollars be spent wisely. Acceptable personal use is limited to use that incurs no more than minimal additional expense to the Government in areas such as: communications infrastructure costs; use of consumables in limited amounts; general wear and tear on property; minimal data storage on storage devices; and minimal impacts on NASA IT systems.
(2) Permit limited acceptable personal use of NASA GFP, IT equipment, services, and resources to individuals during the non-duty time of reasonable duration and frequency of use, including during official work breaks, and when the use does not:
(a) adversely affect the performance of official duties;
(b) result in the loss of an individual's productivity;
(c) pose a cybersecurity risk;
(d) violate applicable laws and regulations; or
(e) interfere with the official business or mission of NASA.
(3) Not allow NASA equipment to be used to download illegal, inappropriate, or unauthorized content and untrusted, unapproved, or malicious software applications or services. Use of NASA IT is prohibited for commercial purposes, "for-profit" and "non-profit" activities, or in support of outside employment or business activity.
(4) Maintain that individuals have no expectation of privacy while using any NASA IT at any time, including, but not limited to accessing the Internet, proxy-bypass services, or e-mail. Users have no expectation of privacy even during limited periods of personal use. They have no expectation of privacy even when using personal equipment, services, and applications while connected to NASA GFP, IT equipment, or services.
(5) Maintain that non-compliance or unauthorized or improper use of NASA IT may result in the suspension or revocation of access to NASA products, networks and services, disciplinary action, as well as civil and criminal penalties. Unauthorized and improper use is defined in Attachment C.
(6) Maintain that Authorizing Officials (AOs) for mission systems may impose stricter security controls, user privacy controls, and restrict applications for their systems due to mission criticality or unique mission requirements.
(7) Maintain that the privilege to use NASA GFP, IT equipment, services, and resources for non-government purposes may be revoked or limited at any time by Federal or Agency officials. NASA Centers and contractors may invoke stricter policies or implementing guidance.

C.1. Employees and contractors are permitted limited personal use of GFP and IT services to the extent that such personal use does not interfere with official duties or result in a loss of productivity and for contractors only to the extent specified or referenced in their contracts. Employees and contractors are only authorized to use office property and services for personal use if they are first authorized to use the property for official business. NASA is not required to supply property if the property is not required for the employee or contractor to perform official business. Moreover, personal use may incur only minimal additional expense to the Government in areas such as:
a. Communications infrastructure costs such as, but not limited to, telephone or data charges, Internet connectivity, and telecommunications traffic.
b. Consumables such as, but not limited to, paper, ink, and toner.
c. Wear and tear on property such as, but not limited to, copiers and printers.
d. Impacts on network bandwidth such as, but not limited to, e-mail message sizes, e-mails with attachments, text messaging, and personal use of social media (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube).
C.2. Inappropriate Personal Use - Employees and contractors are expected to conduct themselves professionally in the workplace and to refrain from using GFP and IT services for activities that are inappropriate. Misuse or inappropriate use of GFP and IT services includes, but is not limited to:
a. Any personal use that violates applicable law, regulation, Federal or Agency policies, or procedural requirements.
b. Any personal use of unauthorized streaming media services (or other software or services that could cause unnecessary congestion, delay, or disruption of service to any Government system or component). Examples include, but are not limited to, Netflix, SiriusXM, Amazon Prime Video/Music, Pandora, Spotify, Disney+, YouTube TV, or any other similar services.
c. Using a Government system as a staging ground or platform to gain unauthorized access to other systems.

Privacy Expectations - NASA employees and contractors do not have a right to expect privacy while using Government office property or IT services at any time, including accessing the Internet and using e-mail. Employees and contractors are advised that the Government maintains call detail and network access records to monitor telephone activity and Internet access and employs monitoring tools to track system performance and improper use. To the extent that employees and contractors wish their private activities to remain private, they need to refrain from personal use of GFP and IT services. By using GFP, employees and contractors consent to disclosing the contents of any files or information maintained on or passed through the property. Any use of Government communication resources are made with the understanding that such use is subject to Government surveillance and inspection in accordance with the law, is not private, and is not anonymous. This includes personal property (e.g., tablets, smartphones) that connect to Government networks and services.
C.4. Sanctions for Misuse - Unauthorized or improper use of GFP and IT
