USAP Email Address Format
U.S. Antarctic Program - IT Comms Section United States Antarctic Program United States Antarctic Program Logo National Science Foundation Logo
 

If you are a current or future USAP participant, or communicate with participants, please be aware of the USAP email address format.

The current USAP email address naming conventions align with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR Part 37.114 External U.S. government site) and National Science Foundation (NSF) agency guidance.  The naming conventions distinguish the identity of USAP participants between governmental officials acting in an official capacity and the various non-government personnel participating within the program.  This distinction prevents the potential for misrepresentation of non-government individuals as U.S. Government officials.

Group A
U.S. Government employee, civilian or military, conducting official business in direct support of the USAP.
