Free Teleconference: Space Act Agreement or Procurement Contract: How NASA Decides
“About the teleconference: 11 October 2011 – 12 pm EDT – Courtney Graham, the Associate General Counsel for Commercial and Intellectual Property in the NASA Office of General Counsel, will discuss NASA Space Act Agreements, how they differ from traditional Government procurement contracts under the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), and how NASA decides when to use each type of contract. She will use NASA’s recent decision to switch from Space Act Agreements to FAR-based procurement contracts for the next round of NASA’s Commercial Crew Development program as a case study in how this decision is made.”
