By making technology development information easy to find, accessible, and usable, NASA will fuel entrepreneurship, innovation, and scientific discovery. Industry and academia will have insight into the technology portfolio, and will be able to use this information to identify possible areas of technology development collaboration, forecast when technologies may be released for public use and commercialization, and identify areas of aeronautics and aerospace technology development need. Information about NASA’s technology development activities is a valuable national resource and a strategic asset that will expand the knowledge base, spur innovation in U.S. industry and help grow American businesses. The general public can use TechPort to find technology Programs and Projects of interest and discover how these projects have led to breakthroughs and discoveries. TechPort is equipped with features that allow users to efficiently search technology Projects, conduct analysis, identify technology gaps, and generate comprehensive technology reports. TechPort was released as a beta system to provide the public with an opportunity to use the system and provide feedback, and influence the design and type of information provided in future versions of the system. The questions in this RFI gather input on the public experience with the TechPort system, specifically: • The design of the system and ease of use, • The features provided (search, reports, data sheets) and if the public finds them useful, and • The content and the range of collected data in the system. In addition to questions about using the system, this RFI will collect system information, including: • Organization type (Academic Institution, Industry, Government or Public), • Device and browser used to access TechPort. Your system information will enable us to troubleshoot and understand problems, if our system is not functioning for all the intended users.

Notice of Information Collection

AGENCY: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

NOTICE:  (16-021).

ACTION: Notice of information collection.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration developed 
the Technology Portfolio System (TechPort). TechPort is an integrated, 
Agency wide software system designed to capture, track, and manage 
NASA's portfolio of technology investments. TechPort provides detailed 
information on individual technology programs and projects throughout 
NASA. This system enables the public to explore NASA's technology 
portfolio and learn about technology Programs, and Projects, as NASA 
works to mature the technologies for aeronautics, space exploration, 
and scientific discovery missions. In March, 2015 NASA released a beta 
version of the system to allow the public the opportunity to give the 
system a trial run and provide feedback. This RFI solicits inputs on 
the beta version of TechPort.

DATES: The Web site, https://techport.nasa.gov/rfi, will open for

    Title: NASA's Technology Portfolio System, TechPort, Beta Version 
Request for Information (RFI).
    Abstract: NASA embraces the development and advancement of 
technology to support U.S. industries, enhance academic research, spur 
innovation, and promote the building and sharing of knowledge. By 
making technology development information easy to find, accessible, and 
usable, NASA will fuel entrepreneurship, innovation, and scientific 
discovery. Industry and academia will have insight into the technology

identify areas of aeronautics and aerospace technology development 
need. Information about NASA's technology development activities is a 
valuable national resource and a strategic asset that will expand the 
knowledge base, spur innovation in U.S. industry and help grow American 
businesses.
    The general public can use TechPort to find technology Programs and 
Projects of interest and discover how these projects have led to 
breakthroughs and discoveries. TechPort is equipped with features that 
allow users to efficiently search technology Projects, conduct 
analysis, identify technology gaps, and generate comprehensive 
technology reports. TechPort was released as a beta system to provide 
the public with an opportunity to use the system and provide feedback, 
and influence the design and type of information provided in future 
versions of the system. The questions in this RFI gather input on the 
public experience with the TechPort system, specifically:
     The design of the system and ease of use,
     The features provided (search, reports, data sheets) and 
if the public finds them useful, and
     The content and the range of collected data in the system.
    In addition to questions about using the system, this RFI will 
collect system information, including:
     Organization type (Academic Institution, Industry, 
Government or Public),
     Device and browser used to access TechPort.
    Your system information will enable us to troubleshoot and 
understand problems, if our system is not functioning for all the 
intended users. Respondents will also be given the opportunity to 
provide their name and email address if they would like to be contacted 
with possible follow up questions. There are a total of 18 questions 
and it is expected that it will take about 5 to 10 minutes to complete. 
You may complete only one question, or all of the questions.
    When arriving at the home page of the Web site titled: ``TechPort--
User Request for Information'' located at: https://techport.nasa.gov/rfi respondents can proceed to answer the questions. Upon submission, 
respondents will get a notification of the receipt of their responses
