In all we do, we operate according to a set of values that form the bedrock of our efforts. As individuals and as a team, we strive to uphold these values:

People Our greatest strength is our workforce. We aggressively build a team of highly qualified individuals that is representative, at all levels, of America's diversity. We foster a culture that is built on trust, respect, teamwork, communication, empowerment, and commitment in an environment that is free of discrimination. We empower our employees, encouraging and rewarding creativity, initiative, and teamwork. We provide training and valuable hands-on experience to develop and further strengthen our premier work-force. We enable the highest employee productivity through innovative practices that respond to their abilities and needs, all of which enable the Agency to accomplish its missions. We set high standards for leadership and lead by example. Each of us makes unique contributions to NASA's success, and we constantly seek ways to improve.
Excellence We are committed to demonstrating and promoting excellence and continually improving processes, products, and services to better satisfy our customers' needs and requirements. We utilize quality-focused leadership and management to provide our customers with excellent products and services in the most cost-effective, timely, and safe manner.
Integrity We preserve America's confidence and trust by ensuring that our missions are consistent with national goals, carefully conceived, and well executed. We deliver on our promises and are accountable for our performance. We are open and honest with one another and with our customers, and we cooperate within and across organizations to deliver the highest quality results. We are bold but prudent in confronting challenges and accepting risks. We work with integrity and are dedicated to fulfilling our vision in an environment in which adherence to fundamental ethical principles and compliance with related laws and regulations flourish.
