GAO report says NASA didn’t break law with ‘study teams, Huntsville Times
“NASA hasn’t broken the law by spending nearly 13,000 hours of staff time planning what comes after the Constellation rocket program, the Government Accountability Office said Monday, but it must be careful not to cross the legal line while Congress continues to debate whether Constellation will end. The GAO investigated NASA’s recent activities in response to a March request from U.S. Rep. Parker Griffith, R-Huntsville; U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt, R-Haleyville; and 13 other representatives.”
Keith’s 25 May update: Members of the Constellation community are saying that they have been told that contract termination letters for Constellation work will be sent out on/around 1 June. Moreover, Jeff Hanley has reportedly been telling his troops not to worry about these contract-related letters since the “Plan B” sorts of work that he has been directing them to do (with Mike Coats’ and Charlie Bolden’s backing) are really to set the stage for things that “the next Administration” will be doing. Stay tuned.
