                                       GENERAL STATEMENT 
 

The Mission Support appropriation provides funding for NASA's civil service workforce, space communication services, safety and 
quality assurance activities, and for maintenance activities for the NASA institution.  These objectives are accomplished through the 
following elements: 

 
Safety, Reliability and Quality Assurance:  This includes funding for programs to assure the safety and quality of NASA missions, 
through the development, implementation and oversight of Agencywide safety, reliability, maintainability and quality assurance 
policies and procedures. 
 

Space Communication Services:  This includes funding for the operation of the tracking, telemetry, command, data acquisition, and 
communications and data processing activities that are required by all NASA projects.  This includes the Tracking and Data Relay 
Satellite System (TDRSS), and the telecommunications system which provides for real time transmission of data, video and voice 
information between and among NASA installations. 
 

Research and Program Management:  This includes funding for the salaries, benefits, travel requirements and other support of the 
civil service workforce, and the necessary funding for all of NASA's administrative functions in support of research in NASA's field 
centers. 

 
Construction of Facilities:  This includes funding for the modification, rehabilitation, repair and construction of the administrative 
facilities, the environmental compliance and restortation program, and the advanced planning of facilities and design of future 
facilities.
