NASA 2013 Budget Cross Agency Support
2012 | NASA
CAS provides critical mission support capabilities necessary to maintain the operation and administration of the Agency that cannot be directly aligned to specific program or project requirements. The mission support functions align to and sustain institutional capabilities for supporting NASA's mission portfolio by leveraging resources to meet mission needs, establishing Agency-wide capabilities, and providing institutional checks and balances. CAS institutional capabilities ensure that Agency operations are effective and efficient and that activities are conducted in accordance with all statutory, regulatory, and fiduciary responsibilities. CAS program capabilities ensure that vital skills and assets are ready and available to meet technical milestones for programs and projects, that missions and research are technically and scientifically sound, and that Agency practices adhere to standards and processes that provide safety and reliability through proper management of risk.
