Chapter 8. Relocatable Buildingsâ?"Authorization, Acquisition, Use, and Disposal

8.1 Overview

8.1.1 This chapter discusses the policies and procedures to be followed with regard to relocatable buildings.

8.1.1.1 Centers shall use relocatable buildings for short-term real property requirements only and limit the usage term to three years.

8.1.1.2 Centers shall consult with their FUO to explore other solutions to short-term real property requirements.

8.1.1.3 Relocatable buildings may be purchased and used within NASA when they constitute the most feasible and economical means of satisfying interim facility requirements. Buildings used to satisfy such requirements will normally be funded from program or local resources.

8.1.1.4 Relocatable buildings are considered real property. However, certain types of relocatable structures that are nonrigid, including tents and inflatables, are considered personal property.

8.1.1.5 If a relocatable building is acquired via lease or other use agreement, Chapter 4 of this NPR is applicable.

8.1.2 Authorization

8.1.2.1 NASA Center Directors (or an authorized Center Senior Management Official) and the Director, JPL (an FFRDC), have the authority to purchase or lease relocatable buildings that are necessary for mission performance.

a. The cost of the relocatable building(s) shall not exceed $500,000 per action.

b. The term of the lease shall not exceed three years.

8.1.2.2 If relocatable buildings are required beyond three years, a waiver request shall be sent to the Director, FRED, with justification for the extended term, including plans to meet the requirement with permanent structures.

8.1.3 Obtaining Approval to Acquire Relocatable Buildings

8.1.3.1 Centers shall submit a written request signed by the Center Director or designee and other relevant documents to Headquarters for approval via SAAM at least 90 days prior to the proposed acquisition date. The request should include:

a. Complete justification, including a discussion of the cost and method of acquisition, and projected operating and maintenance costs.

b. Size and scope of acquisition, including interior space and land.

c. Proposed space layout and square footage allowance per person.

8.1.4 If the acquisition of a relocatable building meets the capitalization criteria in NPR 9250.1, Form 1739 shall be completed by the FPM prior to the acquisition, as noted in Section 4.8.

8.1.5 At the end of the term, relocatable buildings may be transferred to personal property records and disposed of as personal property.
