1.1.2 Extended TDY (ETDY) is defined as travel lasting in duration for 31 or more continuous calendar days.
1.2.1 41 CFR §301, published by the General Services Administration (GSA), Travel and Transportation Management Policy is the source for Federal Policy on ETDY.
1.2.2 The NASA Office of the Chief Financial Officer promulgates this NPR to:
a. Interpret statutory, regulatory and other policy requirements in a manner that balances the need to ensure that the processing of ETDY is conducted in a responsible manner with the need to minimize administrative costs.
b. Communicate the resulting policies in a clear manner to employees.
1.2.3 This NPR is intended to address matters for which NASA has authority or responsibility to set specific policy and only applies to NASA, and the clause supplements the requirements of 41 CFR ch. 301.

The OCFO develops and implements NASA policy and procedures and works closely with the NASA Shared Services Center regarding changes within the program.
1.3.2 The NASA Shared Services Center (NSSC): Administers the ETDY program in accordance with the FTR and other regulatory requirements. The NSSC also serves as the liaison between the employees and the Center. Additionally, the NSSC implements the NASA processes and procedures developed by OCFO in accordance with the FTR and other regulatory requirements.
1.3.3 Centers’ Travel Points of Contact: Work directly with the OCFO and NSSC designated lead to authorize employees’ ETDY.
