Re: Cooperative Agreement No. 80JSC018M0005, Change in Principal Investigator

Dear Ms. Thompson:

The Center for Advancement of Science in Space (“CASIS”) hereby notifies you, pursuant to Section 4.6 of the above-referenced Cooperative Agreement, of a change in the Executive Director / Principal Investigator position.

Lieutenant General James A. Abrahamson, has been serving as CASIS Interim Executive Director since March 11, 2018. CASIS has hired a new Executive Director, Joe Vockley, and will begin his employment on July 1, 2018. There will be a transition overlap period between Executive Directors as Mr. Vockley becomes familiar with all aspects of the ISS National Lab operations.

Mr. Vockley will assume full responsibilities as the principal investigator effective August 6, 2018. Once the transition period is complete, Lieutenant General James A. Abrahamson will return as a member of the CASIS Board of Directors.

We ask that you provide your approval to this change in Principal Investigator.

Chief of Staff, CFO, and Director of Administration
