SMD Large Mission Study

Conducted from October 2019 to October 2020, this internal NASA study was chartered by the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) to inform improvements to decision making, management, and review processes across SMD, with emphasis on establishing and keeping more achievable commitments when large strategic missions are confirmed.

This internal study is part of SMD’s commitment to uphold its core values of leadership, excellence, integrity, teamwork, and safety. It is focused on SMD’s management of large strategic missions; although it may also inform Agency-level policies and practices, this was not the study’s main intent.
