P.1 Purpose

a. This directive establishes minimum NASA management of facilities maintenance objectives, standards, and requirements in support of NASA Policy Directive (NPD) 8831.1 and NPD 8700.1. In addition to stressing the NASA Administrator's emphasis on the importance of strict compliance with safety regulations, practices, and procedures, it requires the practice of several proactive methods for meeting those objectives and standards, including the adoption of the Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) philosophy and procedures (NASA Reliability Centered Maintenance Guide for Facilities and Collateral Equipment), use of Predictive Testing and Inspection (PT&I) technologies, and maximum use of fixed-price, performance-based contracts coupled with good business practices that are cost effective to accomplish maintenance.

b. This document fixes commonality of facilities maintenance definitions Agency-wide among the NASA Centers and Component Facilities, thereby permitting the application of uniform measures of facilities conditions; allowing meaningful, quantitative metrics in terms common throughout the Agency. This provides the ability to statistically analyze relative variances, compile an information database using terminology and definitions common to and recognized by commercial software products and other industrial and Government applications, and thereby add credibility to the NASA facilities maintenance budgeting process through standardization.

P.2 Applicability

a. This NPR is applicable to NASA Headquarters and NASA Centers, including Component Facilities and Technical and Service Support Centers.

b. Because of the differences in NASA Center organizations, this NPR does not assume or require a typical facilities maintenance organization. Instead, it uses a systems approach to describe the functions that should be included in any facilities maintenance management system, regardless of its organizational structure.

c. In this directive, 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.

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

P.5 Measurement/Verification

a. To determine compliance, Facility Maintenance and Operations Program Engineers assigned to Headquarters Facilities and Real Estate Division (FRED) will perform annual Maintenance and Operation program reviews at the Centers. Reviews entail making random site visits, reviewing Maintenance and Operation Programs and Projects, and evaluating performance and effectiveness in relation to the Annual Performance Metrics and Deferred Maintenance Assessment.
