National Environmental Policy Act; Constellation Program
Document Number: E7-15679
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-08-10
Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Agencies and Commissions
Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of NEPA (40 CFR Parts 1500-1508), NASA's NEPA policy and procedures (14 CFR Part 1216, Subpart 1216.3), and Executive Order 12114, NASA has prepared and issued a Draft PEIS for the proposed Constellation Program to assist in the NASA decision making process. The Proposed Action is to continue preparations for and to implement the Constellation Program. The focus of the Constellation Program is the development of the flight systems and Earth-based ground infrastructure required to enable the United States to have continued access to space and to enable future human missions to the International Space Station, the Moon, Mars, and beyond. The Constellation Program also would be responsible for developing and testing flight hardware, and performing mission operations once the infrastructure is sufficiently developed. The only alternative to the Proposed Action discussed in detail is the No Action Alternative where NASA would not continue preparations for nor implement the Constellation Program and therefore, would forego the opportunity for human exploration of space using U.S. space vehicles.

NASA Implementation of OMB Guidance on Nonprocurement Debarment and Suspension
Document Number: 07-1949
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-04-20
Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is issuing a new Part 1880 on nonprocurement debarment and suspension in Title 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). This new part is NASA's implementation of the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) guidance provided at 2 CFR Part 180. In light of the new Part 1880, NASA is removing 14 CFR Part 1265 which contains the current NASA implementation of the government-wide common rule on nonprocurement debarment and suspension. The new part in 2 CFR serves the same purpose as the common rule in a simpler way. This final rule is part of OMB's initiative to streamline and consolidate all federal regulations on nonprocurement debarment and suspension. It is an administrative simplification that makes no substantive change in NASA policy or procedures for nonprocurement debarment and suspension.
