2 What is NAMS? The NASA Account Management System is NASA’s centralized process for requesting and maintaining accounts for NASA IT systems and applications. – Provides a secure, consistent, expedient, and accurate account management environment across the Agency in support of One NASA and HSPD-12 – NAMS will eventually be the only way to obtain access to NASA IT systems and applications o You will continue to use CICO to request physical assets (computers, desk phones, cell phones, etc.) o Integration of systems and applications into NAMS is a phased implementation, so both NAMS and CICO will be used in parallel for a time – Designed as a Web interface system for end users to not only create, but also modify and close existing accounts
