NASA Security Program Procedural Requirements, NPR 1600.1 Chapter 5, 5.24, requires the protection of Sensitive But Unclassified Information (SBU) and outlines the roles and responsibilities required by all individuals in dealing with SBU.

The Office of Security and Program Protection requires that all employees performing work for NASA (civil servants, contractors, consultants and other persons not employed directly by NASA) receive mandatory SBU training on a yearly basis starting this year.

OMB Memoranda M-06-16, Protection of Sensitive Agency Information dated June 23, 2006, and Office of Inspector General Report IG-06-010, “NASA Should Improve Employee Awareness of Requirements for Identifying and Handling SBU Information,” reinforces the need and requirement for mandatory SBU training. This training is provided to assist all personnel in gaining a better understanding of their roles and responsibilities to identify, mark, safeguard, control, and handle SBU information.

This training requirement is to be completed through SATERN ( The training for this year must be completed no later than June 1, 2007.
