Zero Gravity Corporation’s statement regarding the Office of Inspector General’s June 18, 2010 Audit Report of NASA’s Microgravity Flight Services
“It is important to note that the report highlights that the cost-effectiveness of maintaining the operations-ready status of the C-9 and currency of its crew has never been assessed. Since the primary threat to ZERO-G’s service continuity to NASA is its own insufficient demand, NASA may be a contributor to this risk and should assess the benefit of continuing to invest in the C-9 versus restructuring the current contract with ZERO-G. To date, ZERO-G has invested over $1.5 million to improve its baseline commercial capability to meet NASA’s requirements. Total net revenue from the past two years has not allowed ZERO-G to recoup its initial investment.”
