I. Abstract

The information will be used by the Headquarters Office of Security and Program Protection (OSPP) to help fulfill its responsibilities for facilitating business visits and assignments that support U.S. national interests and NASA's international program interests and operational requirements, and by the Office of External Relations for export control oversight. This information is collected and stored in the NASA Foreign National Management System (NFNMS) and will be used by OSPP to determine acceptability for a foreign national, or U.S. citizen representing a foreign entity, to access NASA installations or facilities for business or high level protocol visit purposes.

II. Method of Collection

Respondents provide unformatted information for specific data fields. Data are provided orally, via a hard copy, or e-mailed to a NASA representative who transfers the information into a database (attached is a printout of the NASA Foreign Nationals Management System data entry form). To ensure data security, access to the electronic data entry form is limited to approved NASA employees or contractors. Direct data entry by respondents is not permitted.
