NASA Cost Symposium

This page has moved. The NASA 2016 Cost Symposium webpage is now available here.

The Cost Analysis Division sponsors an annual NASA Cost Symposium to bring together the entire estimating and analysis community at NASA. The NASA cost analysis community includes all Centers as well as HQ and represents an essential function to the agency. The NASA Cost Symposium advances NASA’s core mission by providing a professional forum for agency analysts to present and learn results of cost research, and participate in training sessions on methods and tools to support important agency initiatives such as conducting Joint Confidence Level (JCL) analyses.

NASA funded attendees are selected by their management, center leadership, and members of the NASA Executive Cost Analysis Steering Group (ECASG). These individuals represent some of the finest analysts and estimators at NASA. Recognizing their efforts and affording them with an opportunity to present in a professional forum will continue to foster their individual growth and improve the overall analysis community at NASA. Attendees and presenters are substantively involved in the conference through submission of professional papers, conducting briefings and presentations, completion of live demonstrations, and participation in training.
