P.1 Purpose

a. This NASA Procedural Requirements (NPR) document provides the minimum requirements for planning, approving, and acquiring all NASA facility projects.1 It implements the policy established in NASA Policy Directive (NPD) 8820.2, Design and Construction of Facilities by supplementing the policies and requirements established in NPD 7120.4, NASA Engineering and Program/Project Management Policy and NPR 7120.7, Institutional Infrastructure and Information Technology Program and Project Management with specific facility construction requirements.

1 "Project" in this document refers to facility work (repair, modification, renovation, or new construction on NASA real property) with an estimated cost greater than or equal to $100,000 (excluding maintenance work).

P.2 Applicability

a. This NPR applies to NASA Headquarters (HQ), NASA Centers, and Component Facilities for all sources of construction funding. This NPR applies to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a Federally Funded Research and Development Center, and other contractor facilities to the extent specified or referenced in their contracts.2 It also applies to non-NASA-owned facilities constructed on NASA real estate unless the NASA Headquarters Facilities Engineering Division (FED) waives the requirement.

b. In this NPR, all mandatory actions (i.e., requirements) are denoted by statements using 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.

c. All document citations in this NPR refer to the latest version of the document unless otherwise noted.

2 For the rest of this document, the term "Centers" refers to NASA Centers, Component Facilities, and JPL to the extent specified in its contract.

P.3 Authority

a. Authority to enter into contracts, as amended (Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPC)), 42 U.S.C. § 8287 et seq.

b. The National Aeronautics and Space Act, as amended, 51 U.S.C. § 20113.

c. Lease of non-excess property (Enhanced Use Lease (EUL)), 51 U.S.C. § 20145.

P.5 Measurement/Verification

The FED verifies compliance with the requirements of this NPR by conducting annual Construction of Facilities (CoF) program reviews at the Centers. For the CoF reviews, the FED identifies a random selection of CoF projects from the Centers and then reviews project documentation and interviews project managers and project stakeholders for those projects. In addition, Centers document compliance with this NPR by completing a Compliance Matrix (Appendix C) for every facility project and submitting the completed Compliance Matrix to the FED upon request.
