Dear Contractor, Grantee, or Agreement Participant:

This communication is being sent to all the National Aeronautics and Space Administration
(NASA) contract, grant, cooperative agreement, and Space Act agreement holders.

As you are likely aware, the President was required by law to issue a sequestration order
canceling approximately $85 billion in budgetary resources across the Federal Government
for the remainder of the Federal fiscal year. We are writing to provide you with timely and
clear information about how these budget cuts impact us, and in turn what it means for funds
provided to your organization.

At this time, NASA is taking every step to mitigate the effects of these cuts, but based on our
initial analysis, it is possible that your contract, grant, cooperative agreement, or Space Act
agreement may be affected. In addition, planned actions for new and existing work may be
re-scoped, delayed, or canceled depending on the nature of the work and the degree to which
it directly supports the Agency's mission goals.

To the extent that your contract, grant, cooperative agreement, or Space Act agreement is
affected due to these budget cuts, you will be contacted by your Contracting, Agreement or
Grant Officer with additional details.

Thank you for your continued partnership with NASA, and for your cooperation as we work
together to continue operations and produce the important and necessary results that we have

ELizabeth (Beth) Robinson
Chief Acquisition Officer
