NASA auditor Amy Langdale is proof someone from a small place can move forward to make significant contributions.

The Atkins, Arkansas, native grew up in a town that has a population of less than 3,000 people and now works at NASA’s Stennis Space Center near Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, a federal city with a sitewide workforce approaching 5,000.

The work Langdale performs ensures NASA remains in compliance with federal regulations for contract administration and auditing services. Additionally, Langdale works as a price analyst to identify contractors that can deliver top products and services for the best price to perform NASA missions.

I am proudest when I can identify that I have helped to achieve the mission while being a good steward of taxpayers’ dollars.

Bottom line – Langdale knows about making things count at NASA. “I am proudest when I can identify that I have helped to achieve the mission while being a good steward of taxpayers’ dollars,” she said.

The Ocean Springs resident marks 10 years working as a NASA civil servant in August, following 20 years of work with the U.S. Department of Defense. Since the NASA Stennis Office of Procurement merged with all other NASA centers to form the NASA Office of Procurement, Langdale has helped establish policies and procedures for its newly minted Cognizant Federal Agency.

She also has continued to support NASA Stennis efforts. Langdale performs analysis related to the procurement of materials and services associated with maintaining the site and with testing of RS-25 engines. Likewise, she supported Green Run testing of the Space Launch System core stage at NASA Stennis prior to the successful launch of Artemis I.

“As a member of the Office of Procurement at NASA Stennis, I have experienced a wonderfully inclusive workforce that always overcomes any obstacle to achieve the mission goals,” Langdale said.
“It has been my experience that NASA Stennis seeks to ensure all individuals are valued for their ideas and unique perspectives,” she noted. “While not all these ideas and perspectives are deemed by the group to be the solution, all are encouraged to provide input and participate so that discussions can take place and decisions can be made.”

Langdale is most excited about NASA moving forward in its pursuit of establishing the Moon as a base for moving on to Mars and beyond. Through Artemis, NASA will send the first woman and first person of color to the Moon. The agency will use what is learned on and around the Moon to take the next giant leap – sending astronauts to Mars.
Langdale’s work along the way will help NASA’s Office of Procurement fulfill its responsibility to explore and execute innovative, effective, and efficient acquisition business solutions to optimize operations and enable mission success.
