NASA OIG: Evaluation and Oversight of NASA’s University-Affiliated Spaceport Technology Development Contract Needed Improvement
“We found that performance evaluation factors used to assess ASRC Aerospace Corporation’s performance were not TO-specific and did not provide the basis for a fair and objective assessment of the USTDC contractor’s performance. Because performance evaluation factors were not TO-specific and tied to desired outcomes as required by acquisition regulations, the performance evaluations provided little evidence that the approximately $2.2 million in USTDC award fees for FY 2007 were fully justified or were an accurate reflection of the contractor’s performance.”
