NASA Extends Deadline For Proposals To Partner In Digital Imagery
NASA amended its solicitation to make the historic imagery captured by the agency's exploration activities accessible to the public through an innovative partnership. The extension, from June 4 to June 25, allows proposers time to process additional information in the amendment and incorporate it as necessary in submissions.

The new information includes examples of type and quantity of archived still imagery at the Johnson Space Center; moving pictures at all NASA Centers; data on the reach of the NASA Web portal; merchandising and advertising guidelines as it relates to imagery.

In April NASA requested proposals to digitize and consolidate agency analog, still, film, video and graphic imagery for easier public online research and retrieval.

A comprehensive database of historical, educational and commercially viable material will be developed by a partnership between NASA and either an organization or consortium. NASA has more than 115,000 film and video titles and millions of still images documenting the history of America's space program.

After the June deadline, NASA will review proposals from organizations sharing the agency's mission, values and goals that could provide entrepreneurial opportunities, in a non-reimbursable relationship, to provide public access to these vast imagery archives.
