NASA picks SAP app

NASA is buying financial management software to replace 10 accounting systems now in use at the space agency's centers.

The core financial software, from SAP Public Sector and Education Inc. of Washington, will unify the agency's accounting data at the transaction level, said Michael B. Mann, director of NASA's Integrated Financial Management Program.

NASA officials chose from six products certified through the interagency Joint Financial Management Improvement Program. The base software will go in at the NASA Consolidated Computing Center at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., Mann said. About 6,000 NASA employees will access through their browsers when the project is complete in mid-2003.

Under SAP's General Services Administration schedule contract, NASA is paying $6.67 million for the software and the first year of support. After that, the annual maintenance will likely be $800,000 to $900,000, Mann said.
