This has been an exciting week at the NASA Office of Small Business Programs. In December, I told you post about our newly formed NASA Industry Forum (NIF). The inaugural meeting was held on March 18 and 19 here in Washington, D.C. Despite snow and weather related challenges, the new members of the NIF managed to not only make it to the meeting, but also provide much need appreciated perspective and insight into the nuances of each of the centers. I’d also like to extend my gratitude to all of the NASA representatives who provided insight into how the Agency is meeting its mission with our small business contractors.
