Mike Griffin's 10 11 Healthy Field Centers

Editor's note: If you go to this page you will see that APL is now listed as a NASA Center - not only at the top of the page - but also along with the award notices listed below. It would certainly seem that NASA sprouted another field center overnight (with a contract award amount of $750,000,000 for the 5 year base period and an option for and extensive of equal length and value) - one where its Administrator was last employed - and one that is also located in the home state of someone who could become the next chair of the Senate Appropriations subcommittee that controls NASA's budget. I don't see any mention of this new "center" status in the press releases that were issued. Click on image to enlarge.

  • "APL is one of three government or university affiliated institutions with the capability to perform all aspects of robotic space missions. This contract will provide a means to preserve this essential capability at APL, consistent with NASA's evolving needs. The contract includes extension options for up to an additional five years."
