NASA Business Case Guide for Real Property and Facility Project Investments  


The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) developed this Business Case Guide in accordance with NASA Headquarters’ role in decision and policy making for real property and facilities within NASA. Business cases and the associated analyses for proposed facilities and real property projects (“Projects”) are needed to ensure that NASA develops and controls the right set of facilities and infrastructure to support its mission. The requirement of a business case supports NASA’s Real Property Asset Management Plan and the associated Real Property Management Goals as outlined in NPR 8820.2F (Facility Project Requirements) and NPR 7120.5D (NASA Program and Project Management Requirements).
