Logistics Management Division

The Logistics Management Division (LMD) provides oversight of personal property held worldwide by NASA and its contractors (including grantees) and facilitates efficient and economical transportation solutions for NASA’s mission and its employees. Center logistics operations have a direct impact on NASA’s missions, primarily through institutional services that support Agency programs, projects, facilities, and management activities. LMD serves as the “corporate office” for Center logistics operations by developing Agency-wide policies, processes, and systems; providing technical guidance and expertise; facilitating the use of Government and industry best practices; and serving as an advocate for the reform of regulations and laws that burden the logistics community. LMD provides leadership in the functional areas of supply and materials management; equipment management; contract property management; transportation, travel, and vehicle fleet management; and property utilization and disposal management. In addition, the Division seeks to mitigate the risk to NASA’s mission associated with private sector labor unrest through the Contractor industry relations program and promotes NASA employee morale and welfare through its oversight of the Employee Exchange Program. 

NASA Ombuds Program

The NASA Ombuds Program was established in 2005 as an informal, independent, confidential, and neutral means of communicating safety, organizational performance, and mission-related issues and facilitating their resolution without fear of retaliation. All NASA Centers and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory have Ombuds who will listen to an employee’s issues, explore options, and weigh the pros and cons of various options for resolution. The Ombuds reports to the Center Heads at each site.

Space Environment Testing Management Office

The Space Environments Testing Management Office provides leadership, oversight, and management of NASA’s shared capability assets to ensure their availability and readiness to support NASA and National mission needs. The Space Environments Testing Management Division is a corporately managed program that selects capabilities or types of assets (“asset classes”) for prioritized investment and centralized management to support cross-agency needs. Additionally, the Program will identify and prioritize its critical assets and make strategic investment decisions to replace, modify, or disposition them based on need.
