Information was requested on the costs and benefits associated with dividing operations at the Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) in Tennessee among as many as three contracts. The impact of a change in contractors on the efficiency of operations at AEDC and on employees of the incumbent contractor was explored. AEDC has been operated by a single contractor since its inception in 1950. The current 3-year contract expires in September 1980 but includes two 1-year options to continue with the incumbent through September 1982.
