2017 CSO Customers' Forum

August 15-17, 2017

"Due to low customer registration and CSO budget constraints, we will be postponing the CSO Customer Forum that was scheduled for August 15-17.  We will send out future notices once we reschedule.  Thank you!


The Communications Service Office (CSO) is responsible for the enterprise-wide delivery of communication services.  Examples include Agency Wide Area Network, Local Area Network, Collaboration Services, and Center Services as requested. 

CSO staffing is primarily drawn from the three Host Centers – ARC, GSFC and MSFC:

  • Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) provides leadership for the overall program management, administrative and financial management, and management of the corporate communications services
  • Ames Research Center (ARC) provides cross-cutting integration and leadership in the areas of IT security, research networking, emerging network technology and innovation, enterprise architecture, and project management governance
  • Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) provides leadership for the overall management of the mission communications services

CSO utilizes NASA Integrated Communication Services (NICS), as the main support for provision of these services.
