NASA TO BRIEF INDUSTRY ON SPACE LAUNCH SYSTEM PROCUREMENT

WASHINGTON -- NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver, agency 
procurement officials, and Space Launch System Program managers will 
meet with contractors and small-business entrepreneurs Sept. 29 for 
the Space Launch System Industry Day at the Davidson Center for Space 
Exploration in Huntsville, Ala. 

NASA will brief industry representatives on the agency's acquisition 
strategy for the Space Launch System program and provide an overview 
of the program, its organization and specific vehicle requirements. 
The event takes place from 7:55 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. CDT during the 
Marshall Space Flight Center's quarterly Small Business Alliance 
Meeting. It will provide small business leaders a forum to discuss 
opportunities with representatives of NASA and large prime 
contractors. 

Media representatives interested in attending Industry Day should 
contact Dan Kanigan at 256-544-0034 no later than 4 p.m. CDT, 
Wednesday, Sept. 28. The Davidson Center is located at One 
Tranquility Base in Huntsville. 

Marshall is leading design and development of the Space Launch System 
for NASA. The new heavy-lift launch vehicle will take astronauts 
beyond low-Earth orbit and enable new exploration missions across the 
solar system. The first full-scale SLS test flight is targeted for 
2017. 

NASA Industry Day speakers will include Garver; Marshall Center 
Director Robert Lightfoot; Glenn Delgado, associate administrator of 
NASA's Office of Small Business Programs in Washington; Todd May, 
director of NASA's Space Launch System Program Office; Kim Whitson, 
deputy director of Marshall's Office of Procurement; and Earl 
Pendley, manager of the Space Transportation Support Office in 
Marshall's Office of Procurement.
