P.1 Purpose

a. This directive establishes general requirements and procedures for NASA to ensure that information concerning significant problems involving parts, materials, processes, software, and safety problems is exchanged internally and externally. The proper utilization of this data can improve the total quality, reliability, and maintainability of systems and components during the acquisition and logistic phases of the life cycle while reducing costs in the development and manufacture of complex systems and equipment.

b. This directive provides the procedures for the authoring, distribution, assessment, and response of NASA Advisories and Government Industry Data Exchange Program (GIDEP) Alerts, GIDEP Safe-Alerts, GIDEP Problem Advisories, and GIDEP Agency Action Notices, hereafter collectively called GIDEP Notices.
