[Program/Project Name] Formulation Authorization Document
[short title or acronym][
Describe the purpose of the program/project, including a clear traceability from the goals and objectives in the Mission Directorate Strategies or Program Plan, as applicable. This need is independent of any particular technological solution and is stated in terms of functional capabilities.
Describe the NASA organizational structure for managing the Formulation process from the Mission Directorate Associate Administrator (MDAA) to the NASA Center program/project managers, as applicable. Include lines of authority, coordination, and reporting. For projects and single-project programs, the Formulation Authorization Agreement (FAD) provides the basis for the project's Formulation Agreement.
3.0 PROGRAM/PROJECT GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Describe the level or scope of work, goals, and objectives to be accomplished in the Formulation Phase, Formulation cost targets and constraints, the time available, and any other constraints.
4.0 INTERNAL PARTICIPANTS
Identify Mission Directorates, Mission Support Offices, and Centers to be involved in the activity, their scope of work, and any known constraints related to their efforts (e.g., the program/project will be co-funded by a different Mission Directorate).
5.0 EXTERNAL PARTICIPANTS
Identify participation external to NASA to be involved in the activity, their scope of work, and any known constraints related to their efforts (e.g., the program/project will be co-funded by the external participant).
6.0 BUDGET AND COST ESTIMATE
Identify, by fiscal year, the funding that will be committed to the program/project during each year of project Formulation. If the Formulation period is less than five years, provide estimated annual costs through the next five years. For projects, provide an estimated life-cycle cost range that is consistent with this five-year cost runout.
For each project, provide the planned date for the completion of Phase A and estimated completion of Phase B. Provide an estimated date (or range) for the completion of project development. Specify the planned prime operations period.
8.0 LIFE-CYCLE REVIEWS
Specify the program and project life-cycle reviews (per figures 2-2, 2-3, 2-4, and 2-5 in
Chapter 2 of this NPR) that are required to be conducted during the Formulation Phase. Include any other requirements, e.g., the ASM, and any known unique considerations, e.g., international participation.
