The MIC rooms on floors 3, 5, 6, and 7 are to be utilized in the original “U” shape configuration. They are not designed to be reconfigured due to the cabling set up. The tables are wired with equipment which is sensitive and can be damaged if the tables are moved. If you require a different room to accommodate a specific purpose (e.g., training, retirement parties, etc.), contact the Facilities Help Desk at 358-0233 for assistance.

The HQ Security Office advises personnel to be vigilant not only at Headquarters, but off-site as well. Employees should not draw attention to themselves as Government employees or contractors when outside the workplace or at official activities, through their conversation, or by displaying NASA badges, including when commuting to and from work. Always be aware of your surroundings and secure your NASA badge out of sight outside the workplace.
