NASA’s Online Employee Directories
All NASA HQ Employees
February 3, 2009

Currently, there are several online directories in use at NASA to locate employees and contractors. The one most widely used is the NOMAD Global Address List (GAL) which is part of our e-mail system. The other two are the X.500 Directory and a new agency directory called the NASA Enterprise Directory (NED).

NED is NASA’s online phone and information directory and is available at https://webdir.nasa.gov. It is the only definitive single storage location for all Centers’ directory information and should be considered the most reliable source of information. NED will eventually replace the X.500 Directory.

Updating Employee Data

Previously at Headquarters, all employee data was updated via an e-mail to update@hq.nasa.gov. However, due to recent improvements in NASA’s Agency-wide IT infrastructure, certain data elements can only be changed by the Human Resources Management Division through an official personnel action processed by an organization’s Administrative Point of Contact (POC) in the Federal Personnel Payroll System (FPPS). The following fields can only be updated by an Administrative POC: an employee’s name, organization ID, Center, and job title. All other data elements continue to be updated via a request to update@hq.nasa.gov. A Directory of Administrative POC’s is posted online for your convenience.

The GAL and NED are updated by receiving data feeds from both the X.500 Directory and FPPS. However, it is important to note that FPPS-related changes may not appear in the GAL and NED for 2 pay periods after the official personnel action is processed in FPPS.

Should you need assistance, call the Enterprise Service Desk (ESD) at 358-HELP (4357) or 1-866-4NASAHQ (462-7247) or send an e-mail.
