NASA’s direct partners. With some few exceptions (for example, http://halvas.spacescience.org/broker/bess/archive/040404.htm and http://aiwg.gsfc.nasa.gov/esappdocs/crosscut/DEVELOPProjPlan.doc), nonfederal partners were supposed to be reached in a third-party manner through the federal agency partnering with NASA. Such an approach was supported by NRC (2002a, p. 5): “the process of interacting with other federal agencies to reach a broad group of users is a viable and appropriate avenue to pursue.”
