P.5 Measurement/Verification

a. To determine Center compliance with E.O. 13526, 32 CFR pt. 2001, and this NPR, Center Directors and Center Chiefs of Protective Services/Chief of Security (CCPS/CCS) or their designees will determine and document compliance through annual self-assessments and reviews conducted by the Office of Protective Services (OPS). Each Center Protective Services Office will conduct assessments of select organizations throughout their Center on a yearly basis to determine if Center organizations are in compliance with this NPR. OPS will provide the Centers with an OPS Self-Inspection Checklist to be used in conjunction with the NPR to ensure that all Center reviews will be tailored to include all steps necessary to perform a comprehensive review of all pertinent areas within a Center.

b. OPS will conduct evaluations, by way of the functional review process, of Center compliance and implementation. OPS will evaluate each Center at least every three years, or sooner if required, using the OPS Functional Review Checklist to determine compliance with this NPR. The functional review process will identify non-compliant issues (findings), observations, and best practices. Non-compliance with this NPR, the E.O. 13526, and/or 32 CFR pt. 2001, will result in findings that will be forwarded to the Center Director and the Assistant Administrator (AA) for Protective Services. The findings from the OPS Functional Reviews will be provided to the Center Director no later than 30 days after completion of the review. The Center will be required to submit an action plan outlining the non-compliant area along with the corrective action for compliance. OPS will review the findings within 30 days and inform the Center of the approval or disapproval of the corrective actions.

c. The Information Security Oversight Office (ISOO) maintains continuous relationships with agency counterparts on all matters relating to the Classified National Security Program and 32 CFR pt. 2004. ISOO also conducts on-site assessments to monitor agency compliance with E.O. 13526 and 32 CFR pt. 2001. Each year ISOO gathers relevant statistical data regarding each agency's security classification program. ISOO analyzes and reports this data, along with other relevant information in its Annual Report to the President. NASA follows ISOO guidance and is subject to ISOO inspections and reviews.

d. Internal and external auditors responsible for ensuring that Agency compliance and effective implementation of the E.O. 13526 will evaluate the NASA CNSI program.
