Doing Business with Wallops
The process for conducting a project at Wallops Flight Facility varies depending on the type of project and the type of customer
organization. In general, the process follows the paths described below:
- Contact is initiated with the Advanced Projects Office to discuss feasibility of a prospective project.
If NASA/Wallops and the customer agree that the project is feasible, frequently a Technical Interchange Meeting is scheduled
(usually at Wallops) to familiarize Wallops personnel and identify key issues and actions.
- Wallops and the customer agree that technical and schedule requirements can be met.
- Wallops and the customer establish necessary agreement as defined below:
Once funding has been established, the assigned Project Manager serves as the single point-of-contact for the lifetime
of the project.
The Project Manager will work with the customer to identify documentation required by Wallops to satisfy operational,
safety, frequency, environmental and other requirements as necessary. Wallops strives to minimize the administrative
requirements placed on the customer.
The Project Manager will work with the customer to establish technical reviews, funding reports and other information
necessary to assure that the project is conducted both safely and satisfactorily to the customer.
Upon completion of the project, Wallops requests that the customer provide feedback on our support so that we can
take steps to improve our services.
