ARC Pursues Alternate Models of Organization and Cutting Costs

NASA ARC Internal Memo: Message from the Director - Cost Reductions and Efficiencies

"We need to take immediate actions to maintain competitive overhead rates and control the cost of doing business. In implementing full cost management, we must also be mindful that individual Programs may have specific needs for hiring or purchases. However, project implementation is the responsibility of the Center and as such we must ask the Program Managers to accommodate any near term disruption. In the long run, lower costs help all programs."

NASA ARC Memo: Message from the Director - Alternative Models of Organization

"... the NASA Organization Model and Evaluation Team (NOMET) that was created as a result of the President's Commission also recommended several models for the Centers to evaluate for organizing to meet the Vision for Space Exploration. Specifically related to Ames, the NOMET team concluded that the University Affiliated Research Center (UARC) was potentially a good first step toward an operating model, and that other models may also be applicable for a NASA R&D Center and should continue to be explored."
