OIG's Annual Statement That NASA Has Project Management Issues

2015 Report on NASA's Top Management and Performance Challenges, NASA OIG

"In the OIG's view, the principal challenge facing Agency leaders will be to effectively manage the Agency's varied programs in an uncertain budget environment. NASA's ability to sustain its ambitious exploration, science, and aeronautics programs continues to be driven in large measure by whether the Agency is able to adequately fund such high-profile initiatives as its commercial cargo and crew programs, Space Launch System rocket and Orion capsule, James Webb Space Telescope, and the personnel and infrastructure associated with these and other projects."

"The underlying theme of this year's report is sustainability. Specifically, the OIG noted that NASA's ability to sustain its ambitious exploration, science, and aeronautics programs will be driven in large measure by whether the Agency is able to adequately fund such high-profile initiatives as its commercial cargo and crew programs, Space Launch System rocket and Orion capsule, James Webb Space Telescope, Mars 2020 Rover, and associated personnel and infrastructure."

"Similar to last year, we noted that declining budgets and fiscal uncertainties have compounded the difficulty of meeting these and other NASA challenges. Finally, during FY 2014 the OIG will conduct audit and investigative work that focuses on NASA's continuing efforts to meet these challenges."

"Throughout its 50 year history, NASA has been at the forefront of science and space exploration and the Agency's missions have resulted in numerous scientific discoveries and technological innovations. Unfortunately, in addition to their scientific accomplishments many NASA projects share another less positive trait - they often cost significantly more to complete and take longer to launch than originally promised."
