About the Internal Training Purchases Team
New! Effective Thursday, June 18, 2015, the procurement of internal training (UNDER $25,000) will be transitioned from the NSSC Procurement Office to the NSSC Human Resources Office. It is important to note that the submission of internal training requests WILL NOT change. The only change is that you will have different Contracting Officers located in NSSC Human Resources that will sign these purchase orders.
The NSSC Procurement Office will still process internal training requests OVER $25,000. A new Procurement Contracting Officer has been assigned this function.
On July 16, 2007, the purchasing of Internal Training and data entry into SATERN transitioned to the NSSC. Internal Training (sometimes referred to as On-site Training) is any training event that takes place on a NASA facility. The NSSC Human Resources office provides data input services for this activity.
Procurements for Internal training use purchase orders drawing funds from the NSSC working capital fund. The NSSC Budget and Accounting Division, in turn, draws funds from the Center's Center Management and Operations (CMO) accounts on a quarterly basis to ensure the availability of funds for these purchases.
NSSC's support for Internal (On-Site) Training is a team effort between the requesting Center and NSSC Human Resources to ensure that essential training is correctly identified, purchased, scheduled and recorded to meet NASA's Mission.
When doing business with NASA, vendors must have a DUNS number. It is important to know that it can take up to 7 days to obtain a DUNS number. Once the vendor has received their DUNS number they will need to register with System for Award Management (SAM). SAM registration will take 7-10 days to become active. Vendors need to complete Representations and Certifications within their SAM registration.
