The Cultural Resource Management (CRM) Program is NASA's historic preservation program established for the identification, evaluation, and protection of historic properties in compliance with the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) and its implementing regulations (36 Code of Federal Regulations Part 800). The CRM Program provides the policy and procedures to ensure that each NASA center and component facility complies with all of the local, state, and federal laws and regulations related to cultural resources management, including NHPA, National Environmental Policy Act, the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act of 1990, and the Archaeological Resources Protection Act.

Integrated Cultural Resources Management Plan (ICRMP)
The Integrated Cultural Resources Management Plan reflects NASA's most current national cultural resources management procedures and standards as administered by NASA's Federal Preservation Officer, as well as the mission and organizational objectives of Ames Research Center.

California Department of Public Resources 523 Identification/Evaluation Forms
Ames is in the process of surveying all of the buildings on the Ames campus to provide an initial record of historical resources. This survey will be used to identify buildings that may have historic eligibility for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places and to assist with the Ames Campus master planning process.

Historic Re-Use Guidelines
These guidelines define re-use opportunities and the historically significant and character-defining features of the Ames contributing buildings located within the Shenandoah Plaza Historic District and selected buildings within the Ames campus. Some of the features of the re-use guidelines include: guidance on approaches for proposed building modifications associated with adaptive re-use; historic character of the buildings and elements that need to be preserved; building code evaluation; deficiencies and recommendations (fire/life safety, disability access, and energy conservation) to meet code.
