The XML Archives contain raw data. The archives are intended for use by users who have a great deal of experience with procurement data, XML technology, and large volumes of data. Use of the archive data without a complete understanding of the business processes, rules and regulations, and system information increases the risk of flawed analysis.
The archive contains procurement data as well as additional NASA data (for example, financial assistance actions). The NASA data is not available through standard reports in FPDS-NG.
Individuals using archive data agree by virtue of downloading this information that they will not misrepresent the data provided. Misrepresentation of the data includes both intentional and accidental omission of rules, processes, exclusions or other guidance that is used to generate legitimate information. A few examples of misrepresenting data include creating a report that purports to show socio-economic information but which contains none of the requisite Small Business Administration rules and exclusions or identifying a vendor as being small or large without benefit of the business process and rules regarding size determination, vendor representations, vendor certifications, etc.
