NASA Office of JPL Management and Oversight (NOJMO)

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory Campus

NASA is the sponsor of the federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) known as the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. The NASA Office of JPL Management and Oversight (NOJMO) is the NASA Headquarters on-site government organization serving the functions of contract management, on-site agency oversight, and ensuring regulatory compliance of contractor operations in accordance with 48 Code of Federal Regulations 35.017 as an FFRDC.
JPL is funded by NASA to meet specific long-term technical needs that cannot be met by any other single organization within the agency. As part of this special relationship, NASA requires that JPL be operated in the public interest, with objectivity and independence, be free from organizational conflicts of interest, and have full disclosure of its affairs to NASA. The NOJMO director reports to NASA’s associate administrator and serves as the official in charge of managing the sponsoring agreement with the contractor operating the FFRDC. The NOJMO director provides on-site oversight of contract implementation while ensuring statutory, regulatory, and fiduciary compliance requirements are met.
