- Assessing changes in the NASA internal and external environment.
- Identifying key trade-off decisions regarding goals and objectives for the Agency.
- Developing a strategic management process that aligns with the Agency’s performance management system.

The Office of Strategy Formulation (OSF) supports the Administrator, Deputy Administrator, Associate Administrator, Associate Deputy Administrator and Chief of Staff. The Office of Strategy Formulation is responsible for providing, refining, and revising, when necessary, the framework to inform strategic decision making.
The Office of Strategy Formulation coordinates the long term strategy efforts for the Agency by working with mission directorates and other key offices. It supports the Administrator in setting NASA's strategic goals and objectives. It also conducts studies and analysis that inform Agency-wide strategic issues and decisions.
