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.
NASA Insignia Guidelines
NASA has formulated new guidelines which are aimed to simplify and expand NASA Insignia use by NASA grantees (including cooperative agreement recipients, collectively herein, “Grantees”). Grantees are strongly encouraged to use the NASA Insignia Format identified in these guidelines. The purpose of these guidelines is to increase awareness of NASA’s mission activities via Grantee partnerships for a broader and more diverse population.
