The purpose of this handbook is to provide policies and procedures to guide fleet management activities at all NASA Centers. It allows staff to support the operating sectors of each organization productively and consistently, while allowing reasonable flexibility that recognizes broad variations in operating conditions and physical environments. It covers the most important fleet management topics and, where feasible, offers a logical, step-by-step, easy-to-use system of best practices and procedures pertaining to fleet management.
