Editor's note: Contractor layoffs across Goddard and at IV&V are apparently in the works. Bryan O'Connor is headed out to IV&V tomorrow for an all hands meeting.
While at IV&V O'Connor will be leading a Board of Directors (IBD) meeting. Word has it that an internal memo from NASA HQ describes actions to be taken with regard to IV&V. This memo includes the output of a recent PA&E investigation.
IV&V is located in the home district of Rep. Alan Mollohan, D-WV. Mollohan is Chairman of the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies of the House Appropriations Committee.
