Science Information Policy RFI Released

The NASA Science Mission Directorate (SMD) requests information about changes and implementation of the SMD Policy Document SPD-41: The Scientific Information Policy [PDF]. As part of the NASA Plan for Increasing Access to the Results of Scientific Research and the Strategy for Data and Computing for Groundbreaking Science 2019-2024, SMD recognizes the need to maximize the openness of scientifically useful information that is produced as part of our research activities while assuring the quality and preservation of that information. As the diverse SMD community has a wide breadth of needs and the policy may have different impacts on that community, SMD is requesting information on the impact of the proposed changes to SPD-41 and about what support, services, training, funding, or further guidance is needed to support the successful implementation of the existing or proposed information policy.

This email announces a Request for Information (RFI) via the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES) that seeks comment/response from the public on SPD-41: Scientific Information Policy and proposed additions to that policy. The full text of the RFI can be found on `its NSPIRES page. RFI responses must be submitted via NSPIRES and are due on 11 February 2022.

Please email questions and comments concerning this RFI to HQ-SMD-SPD41@mail.nasa.gov, no later than 2 February 2022 at 11:59p Eastern/10:59p Central/9:59p Mountain/8:59p Pacific, with the subject line: “NASA SPD-41 RFI Question/Clarification.” Depending on the nature of received questions, NASA may respond on an individual basis by email or may post responses to inquiries in a “Questions and Answers” document available on the NSPIRES page. Any posted Q&A will be edited to preserve the anonymity of persons and institutions who submit questions and are intended to address inquiries of broader interest and general clarification.

The above email is not to be used for RFI response submissions; any submissions made via this email address may not be considered.
