Stennis Space Center (SSC), is a non-appropriated funds instrumentality of the U.S. government, tasked with the operation of activities that contribute to the efficiency, welfare, and morale of NASA personnel. Exchange revenues are a result of the operation of a gift shop, online store, farmers and specialty markets, miscellaneous sales events and fees derived from approximately fifteen concessionaire agreements. These revenues are in turn used to host a variety of welfare and recreation activities, including but not limited to social functions, program support, and capital projects. The Exchange also provides an oversight role in monitoring the activities of the SSC Recreation Association which includes the revenue producing Cypress House and picnic pavilion facilities. Requirements The SSC Exchange operates on a fiscal year basis. Services of a licensed Certified Public Accountant firm are required to conduct an independent audit of the financial statements and supporting documentation of the SSC NASA Exchange for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2024, and for each year an option is exercised, not- to-exceed five (5) years.
