Grassley calls on NASA to meet its commitment in procurement probe, Senate Finance Committee
"In a letter sent today to NASA headquarters, Grassley said that the agency made specific commitments in a letter to the Government Accountability Office as part of its response to a bid protest. These commitments led to the dismissal of that protest, but a review by the NASA Office of the Inspector General found that NASA did not follow through. "NASA needs to ensure that basic procurement principles are followed. NASA also needs to keep GAO informed and alert them to the events that have transpired since the dismissal of the bid protest to ensure that future responses to GAO are taken credibly," Grassley said."
