If a project wants to waive or deviate from a requirement marked as Headquarters Technical Authority, then the project is required to get NASA Headquarters approval (e.g., NASA Chief Engineer (CE), NASA Chief, Safety and Mission Assurance (CSMA), and/or NASA Chief Health and Medical Officer (CHMO)) on a formal waiver/deviation request or on a software compliance matrix.
