The objective of the NASA Shared Services Center (NSSC), Procurement Division,
Research Activities Branch, is to provide support for NASA research, science and education communities in the award and administration of research, education, training, and facility type grants and cooperative agreements.
The NSSC supports the Agency's internal effort to create an environment conducive to
streamlining and simplifying grants and cooperative agreements. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), through the establishment of the NSSC, has transitioned to a consolidated model for the award and administration of all Agency grants and cooperative agreements. The consolidation is designed to achieve efficient and effective service, improve data quality, standardize processes, leverage skills and investments, and provide economies of scale.
Please note that the new OMB Uniform Guidance, 2 CFR Part 200, was implemented by NASA on December 26, 2014. NASA has implemented the OMB Uniform Guidance with 2 CFR 1800 and the Grants and Cooperative Agreement Manual (GCAM). Both may be found on the left hand side of the following website:
Please be advised that since the final Federal Financial Report (SF 425) is due within 90 days of the performance period end date, any payment requests submitted after that period will automatically be placed on hold and considered for rejection by the Payment Management System (PMS).
