Since when does MSFC do smallsats?

NASA MSFC Solicitation: P-POD Microsatellite Launcher With Supporting Technical Assistance

"NASA/MSFC has a requirement for spacecraft deployment and launch vehicle integration support. NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center is proposing to purchase a Poly Picosatellite Orbital Deployer (P-POD). In order to accomplish CubeSail Mission level activities, NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center intends to build and fly a 3U CubeSat called the CubeSail, on a USAF-STP Minotaur IV launch that is tentatively schedule for the third quarter of FY09."

Editor's note: Since when does MSFC do smallsats? Or are they just trying to take yet another project away from ARC? Who is paying for this?
