NASA Announces NSSC Sites Chosen By Offerors
 
 
NASA released today the possible site locations for the NASA Shared Services Center (NSSC) included in proposals received from offerors.

Sites proposed by offerors as possible locations for the NSSC are: Brook Park, Ohio, Huntsville, Ala., and NASA's Stennis Space Center, Miss.

NASA is creating a Shared Services Center to consolidate a variety of transactional and administrative activities being done at each NASA center in the functional areas of Human Resources, Information Technology, Procurement and Financial Management.

The NSSC consolidates targeted activities into a separate NASA center, which reports to Headquarters. The NSSC is designed to achieve efficient and effective service; improved data quality; standardized processes; economies of scale, leveraged personnel skills and investments.

The NSSC will work collaboratively with agency centers to meet their service needs via a contact center. This will allow NASA organizations to focus more time on their core work and strategic initiatives. Each NASA center will have a resident Customer Service Liaison to ensure timely and efficient service.

NASA would like to take this opportunity to thank all the agency centers, community site partners and other participants for their patience, diligence and hard work in support of the NSSC site-selection process. The time and effort will go a long way in ensuring the success of the NSSC for NASA.

On September 13, 2004, NASA released the final Request for Proposal (RFP) for the NSSC. The RFP required potential offerors to select one of six approved locations for the NSSC. The RFP submission deadline was November 8, 2004.

The final selection and award for the NSSC competition is scheduled for May 2005. For more information about the NSSC and the selection process on the Internet, visit:
