National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)
National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) mission is to understand and protect our home planet, to explore the Universe and search for life, and to inspire the next generation of explorers.
Office of Strategic Infrastructure
The mission of the Office of Strategic Infrastructure is to assure that the right infrastructure assets and capabilities are available in the timeframe needed. This is accomplished through effective management of existing infrastructure, enhanced institutional planning and decision-making, proactive deployment of sustainable practices, and by the use of an Agency mission risk-based approach to make institutional decisions.
Facilities Engineering and Real Property Division
The Facilities Engineering and Real Property Division provides functional leadership for all Agency facility engineering programs including facility planning, construction, maintenance and real estate. In addition to leadership. The Division provides consulting, a wide range of enabling and analysis tools, and insight for NASA's real property to ensure that NASA has the facilities available that are necessary to meet NASA's mission.
Environmental Management Division
The Environmental Management Division provides executive and functional leadership, policy, oversight and coordination for NASA institutional and programmatic environmental issues directed toward enabling the NASA mission, assisting Centers, advancing environmental stewardship, and ensuring environmental statutory and regulatory compliance. Proactive, sound environmental management contributes to risk reduction, mission success, and lower environmental liability. Environmental management encompasses a wide range of activities: identifying and mitigating the environmental consequences of program and project activities; informing systems engineering decisions to enhance safety and minimize life-cycle costs; and correcting environmental damage from past operations.
