Chapter 1. Operating Requirements

1.1 Introduction

This NPR provides requirements for the use of monetary gifts, donations, and bequests given to and accepted by the Agency and specifies requirements for requesting funds from the Gifts and Donations Trust Fund (80X8980).

1.2 Objective

The objective of this NPR is to expedite the request process for use of the Gifts and Donations Trust Fund resources and to ensure a timely disbursement of resources for an Agency-approved project proposal. Monetary gifts, donations, and bequests may be used only for activities that further a statutorily authorized activity of the Agency.

1.3 Management

Procedures for requesting and obligating these funds are as follows:

1.3.1 The requesting Center organization shall prepare a project proposal. The proposal will include a description of the project, including benefits expected to result from the project, a project schedule, the amount of funds needed (travel and program related) and the personnel involved.

1.3.2 The proposed project should have a duration of 1 year or less and a request for funds of $25,000 or less.

1.3.3 The project proposal is to be submitted to the requesting organization's Division Director or equivalent, the Center Technical Director or equivalent, the Center Chief Financial Officer, and the Center Director for review and concurrence.

1.3.4 If the project proposal receives the concurrence of the Center officials listed in paragraph 1.3.3, the proposal is then submitted to the Agency Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

1.4 Responsibilities

1.4.1 The Agency Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO), shall review the proposal to ensure all information and documentation are complete and to coordinate the review and approval by the appropriate Mission Directorates and NASA Headquarters functional offices prior to submission to the Agency CFO for acceptance or rejection. The requesting office will be notified of the final decision on acceptance or rejection of the proposal.

1.4.2 The Agency OCFO shall assign appropriate account codes so that the funds will be tracked and controlled through the NASA funds control system.
