NASA looking for business at KSC

NASA is spreading the word that the Kennedy Space Center is open for business even after the space shuttles stop flying later this year.
The space agency put out a formal notice Monday that the facilities at the space center are available to commercial space businesses.
Among the facilities available are the space center's two launch pads; the Vehicle Assembly Building, where the orbiter is mated with the rockets and fuel tank; the hangars where the shuttles are parked when they're not flying; and the landing strip where the shuttles touch down after completing a mission.
NASA has three more space shuttle flights planned before the program ends, most likely at the end of June.
The Center Planning and Development Office is the business development arm of the center. Responsible for all non-procurement partnerships and development, this office serves as Kennedy Space Center’s “front door” for potential new internal and external partners seeking to do business with Kennedy Space Center. Area development managers are listed on the contact page and are eager to work with prospective clients.

Kennedy Space Center also has many technology partnership opportunities for prospective customers, which include technical and lifecycle simulation laboratories. In addition, the Innovative Partnerships Program (IPP) focuses on small business and technological transfer opportunities. The IPP Partnership Seed Fund improves NASA's ability to meet mission technology goals by providing seed funding, as well as bridge funding to enable larger partnerships and development efforts. The IPP is instrumental in providing for an increased range of technology solutions, broadened technology portfolios, and larger pool of qualified commercial providers.
