Space Station: Update on the Impact of the Expanded Russian Role (Letter Report, 07/29/94, GAO/NSIAD-94-248).

Contrary to claims that Russian participation in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) proposed international space station would save $2 billion, GAO's analysis shows that there are no net savings from Russian participation that could be used to fund other areas of the program and accelerate the space station schedule. The $2 billion in savings would be largely offset by (1) at least $1.4 billion in program changes to accommodate the Russians and (2) $400 million in funding requirements arising from lower than anticipated contributions of Russian hardware. NASA still believes that it can meet its assembly schedule and $17.4 billion funding target. However, NASA will have to find substantial savings from other sources to offset the Russian-related funding increases and accelerate the schedule. NASA recently identified additional shuttle improvements that will be needed as a result of Russian participation, which could further boost space station funding requirements.
