"The Office of Inspector General conducted a review to evaluate the management of the human-rating requirements for the Ares I Project. Specifically, our objectives were to determine whether NASA had adequately developed the human-rating requirements and incorporated them into the program and project plans."
"As of January 9, 2009, NASA had issued more than 70,000 PIV cards to staff and contractors, more than 98 percent of the PIV cards NASA planned to issue, from a PIV card issuer that had not been accredited because NASA did not fully comply with Federal guidance."
"We requested additional comments from the Associate Administrator for the Science Mission Directorate on two recommendations in the subject final memorandum because management comments were not fully responsive. One recommendation involved fully implementing an Earned Value Management System and the other recommendation was to ensure that contractor cost control performance is explicitly communicated in future evaluations."
