NASA has tightened guidelines for information technology contractors with a new rule issued July 14 that requires computer systems, networking and telecommunications contractors to abide by NASA information security policy directives, procedures and guidelines.

    The rule amends the NASA Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement to include a requirement for contractors and subcontractors working with NASA unclassified IT systems. The amendment requires that they take certain IT security-related actions, document those actions and submit related reports to NASA. The rule was issued the same week GAO detailed its criticism and recommendations for NASA and other federal agency software change controls.
