Assessment of Impediments to Interagency Collaboration on Space and Earth Science Missions 2010

Statement of Task

The Space Studies Board will establish an ad hoc study committee to prepare a report that will:

  • Assess impediments, including cost growth, to the successful conduct of interagency cooperation on Earth science and space science missions;
  • Identify lessons learned and best practices from past interagency Earth science and space science missions; and
  • Recommend steps to help facilitate successful interagency collaborations on Earth science and space science missions.

Specifically, the study will:

  • Examine the rationale for interagency cooperation in Earth science and space science missions, including variations in motivation for interagency cooperation among agencies.
  • Survey Earth science and space science missions, either in operation or under formulation or development, that involve a significant partnership in either mission execution or instrument development by NASA with one or more other federal agencies. (Candidate missions are detailed in the work plan.) From these case studies, the committee will identify lessons learned and best practices. Areas include: acquisition strategies; program management and structure, including partnership models; and interagency issues related to the “research to operations transition.” 

This project is sponsored by NASA.
