- Full Report:
In view of limited activity at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA's) Western Test Range, NASA began in February 1977 to reduce the contractor's staff. During launch operations, the remaining staff will be augmented with a mobile team from the Eastern Test Range.
The bases for NASA savings estimated to result from the organization were found to be reasonable. By reducing the contract staff from 63 to 21 employees and civil service staff from 23 to 13 employees, NASA projected savings of $859,000 in fiscal year (FY) 1977, $1,685,000 in FY 1978, $2,270,000 in FY 1979, and $2,286,000 in FY 1980.
