NASA HQ's Closed Government Internal News Service

NASA HQ Award: News Clipping Services

"The News Clipping Services contract is a firm-fixed-price contract with a maximum ordering value of $557,447.00. The effective ordering period is five years from the date of award. Under the contract, the work at NASA Headquarters in Washington, DC includes news clipping services."

Keith's note: Year after year the same company gets the same contract. Apparently no one else in America can provide this service. Amazing. Of course, if you have ever seen this product you will know that it never accurately reflects the "news" out in the real world that truly concerns/affects NASA - just a toned-down, politically correct version thereof - all for $100,000 a year for an exclusive audience inside NASA. Despite the fact that this internal news service is paid for with tax dollars, taxpayers can never see it. Neither can employees at field centers. Open government? Not in this instance.
