The Interior Business Center and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration recently renewed a 2007 Memorandum of Understanding to enhance and extend the partnership between the two organizations until 2017.

LC Williams, IBC's Human Resources Directorate's Associate Director, and Jeri Buchholz, NASA's Assistant Administrator for Human Capital Management in the Office of Human Capital Management, signed the updated MOU, representing their organizations.

Through the Human Resources Directorate, the Interior Business Centers offers a set of integrated (seamless, end-to-end and real-time) HR systems and solutions for numerous government agencies. These systems and solutions help to improve the federal governments' business processes for management of human capital.

The partnership with NASA supports common goals and objectives in meeting the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Office of Personnel Management's (OPM's) service delivery model under the Human Resource Line of Business and e-Government initiatives.The renewed agreement allows the IBC and NASA to continue this partnership of bringing about "good government" for their parent agencies and leveraging those capabilities for the federal government as a whole.
