Welcome to the Facilities Engineering and Real Property (FERP) Division


"Real property is integral in achieving NASA's Vision and Mission in science, technology, and discovery. NASA provides value to its programs and workforce through excellence in real property management by ensuring real property assets meet Agency goals.

NASA also provides appropriate stewardship of these assets to achieve the best value for the American taxpayers' investment. The Agency must strive to identify and develop innovative real property management solutions and to construct and operate only the real property required to conduct NASA programs, maintain its core capabilities, and meet national responsibilities."



Real Property Management Goals

  • NASA will identify and address real property requirements as an integral part of Agency, Mission Directorate, program, and project planning.
  • NASA will construct and operate new real property to meet mission requirements only when existing capabilities cannot be effectively used or modified.
  • NASA will continually evaluate its real property assets to ensure alignment with the NASA Mission.
  • NASA will leverage its real property to its maximum potential.
  • NASA will sustain, revitalize, and modernize its real property required by the NASA Mission.


Mission

The Facilities Engineering and Real Property (FERP) Division of NASA Headquarters, provides functional leadership for all Agency facility engineering programs including facility planning, construction, maintenance and real estate. In addition to leadership, FERP provides consulting, a wide range of enabling and analysis tools, and insight for NASA's real property to ensure that NASA has the facilities available that are necessary to meet NASA's mission.

In all aspects of NASA's real property and in partnership with the Mission Directorates and Centers, FERP creates opportunities to enable mission success.
  • To ensure integration, best practices, and fiduciary responsibility for the Agency's construction program;
  • To provide Agency functional leadership for facilities maintenance;
  • To provide functional leadership for Agency real estate management and master planning;
  • To be the "honest broker" to senior management, and those with external oversight, regarding the NASA real property programs, taking an agency-wide view in support of "one-NASA."

  • To accomplish its mission, FERP strives for optimal real property performance by maintaining a global perspective; fostering continual breakthrough improvements; leveraging knowledge management, new technology, and buying power; searching for and promulgating industry best practices by participating with professional facility organizations; and providing appropriate advice and analyses regarding all real property matters for NASA.
