PROCEDURES FOR EXCHANGING PARTS, MATERIALS, AND SAFETY PROBLEM DATA UTILIZING THE GOVERNMENT-INDUSTRY DATA EXCHANGE PROGRAM AND NASA ADVISORIES(SEE NASA NPR 8735.1)
|Publication Date:||5 November 1998|
It is imperative that NASA activities be cognizant of part and material problems, and unsafe conditions that might adversely effect NASA missions. NPD 8730.3 identifies the requirements to control nonconforming products and to perform corrective and preventative actions. This NASA Procedures and Guidelines document describes the additional requirements for the exchange of data concerning significant parts, materials, and safety problems internal and external to NASA. This document provides the procedures for the preparation, distribution, and closeout of Government-Industry Data Exchange Program (GIDEP) ALERTS, GIDEP SAFE-ALERTS, GIDEP Problem Advisories, and GIDEP Agency Action Notices, as well as NASA Advisories. Refer to Appendix A1 for definitions of these documents.
These Procedures and Guidelines establish common, general requirements and procedures for NASA to ensure that information concerning significant problems involving parts, materials, and safety are exchanged both internal and external to NASA.
This Procedure and Guidelines document applies to NASA Headquarters, NASA Centers, including Component Facilities, and to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and NASA contractors to the extent specified in their contracts.
