NASA Program Management Council Minutes 1 November 2006. Rex Geveden, Associate Administrator: “Ownership of data: There have been recent issues that surfaced where data was denied to review teams needing access to perform their functions. Anyone requesting data for an internal review should have access. To deny access is unacceptable behavior. If it is embargoed data then tag it accordingly, but don’t deny access.”

NASA Strategic Management Council Meeting Minutes and Actions 2 November 2006 NASA Data: “Griffin reminded members that nobody at NASA owns data; it is the governments data. If someone within NASA needs data, you are to provide it. Exceptions may be granted for specific reasons, worked through the Associate Administrator.”
