Additional Comments
This handbook is not intended to be a specification, but rather should be used as guidance based on best practices in the programmatic execution of projects and Center-provided mission support. It may also serve to orient newcomers and outsiders to the PP&C processes used at MSFC in the development and management of space systems and associated infrastructure, and the Center's mission support functions.
