This NASA Advisory Council Wants to be Heard

NAC Wants Independent Cost and Technical Estimate of ARM Before Downselect, SPacePolicyOnline

"Traditionally, NAC findings and recommendations are sent to the NASA Administrator in a letter from the NAC Chair. Eventually the Administrator responds and the exchange is posted on the NAC website and they receive little notice. Today, NAC member Miles O'Brien suggested that NAC issue a press release to raise awareness of these issues. The other NAC members, including Squyres, were enthusiastic about the idea. It apparently would be a precedent-setting event. Squyres seemed to feel it is in keeping with the goal he and Bolden share to make NAC more effective. Squyres says he will try to have a press release issued after he formally transmits all of NAC's findings and recommendations to Bolden in about two weeks."
