NASA's Shutdown Plan

NASA Shutdown Plan, 16 December 2018 (pdf)

"Pursuant to OMB Circular A-11, Section 124.2, NASA is hereby submitting a revised shutdown plan in the event of a lapse in appropriations, updating the plan submitted to OMB on September 25, 2015, In this plan, NASA continues to require each NASA Center to provide for protection of life and property. The Decision on what personnel should be excepted from furlough is very fact-specific , and DIrectors in charge of NASA Centers are in the best position to make detailed decisions regarding the suspension of ongoing, regular functions which could imminently threaten the safety of human life or the protection of property."

"NASA's plan recognizes that the excepted activities include the following:

- Space launch hardware processing activities, which are necessary to prevent harm to life or property.
- Tracking, operation, and support of the ISS and operating satellites necessary for safety and protection of property.
- Completion or phase-down of research activities in cases where serious damage to property would result from temporary suspension of the activity."
