P.1 Purpose

This NASA Procedural Requirements (NPR) establishes procedures relating to the utilization and disposal of NASA-owned property prescribed by NASA Policy Directive (NPD) 4300.1, NASA Personal Property Disposal Policy. This document offers procedural guidance to NASA Centers for the utilization and disposal management of NASA-owned excess, surplus, and obsolete exchange/sale property. Centers may customize disposal management procedures to meet local requirements in a manner consistent with NPD 4300.1. Federal regulations set forth the policy for utilization, donation, and sales with which all Federal agencies must comply.

P.2 Applicability

a. This NPR is applicable to NASA Headquarters and NASA Centers, including Component Facilities and Technical and Service Support Centers. This NPR applies to all contractors, grant recipients, or parties to agreements to the extent specified or referenced in the applicable contracts, grants, or agreements.

b. Disposition of NASA-owned property held offsite by contractors is addressed in each respective contract as required by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and the NASA FAR Supplement (NFS). This NPR applies to NASA-held property and contractor-held property located on a NASA installation.

c. When the provisions of this NPR covering property utilization and disposal conflict with specific provisions of Federal property laws, international agreements, or Federal Government-wide policy or procedures (e.g., Executive Orders, Federal Management Regulations (FMR), FAR, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circulars, Property Use, Disposition, and Vesting of Title, 14 C.F.R. § 1260.74), the provisions of the latter documents prevail.

d. In this NPR, all mandatory actions (i.e., requirements) are denoted by statements containing the term "shall." The terms: "may" or "can" denote discretionary privilege or permission, "should" denotes a good practice and is recommended but not required, "will" denotes expected outcome, and "are/is" denotes descriptive material.

e. In this directive, all document citations are assumed to be the latest version unless otherwise noted.
