JPL Jet Propulsion Laboratory

To keep all of NASA’s space missions moving forward, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Acquisitions Division processes thousands of contracts annually across 10,000 vendors.

With contracts ranging from $1,000 into the hundreds of millions of dollars, JPL’s paper-based contracting environment had become complex. A single contract could have thousands of pieces of paper associated with it. JPL needed a more efficient, paperless system where procurement packages would remain digital from requisition to close-out.

Learn how JPL transitioned from a paper-based system to a fully digital contracting environment. Today, JPL creates contracts electronically, routes them with SharePoint, captures signatures from staff and external parties through eSignLive, and automates storage and close-out.
