After celebrating 20 years of service in Fairmont, NASA's Independent Verification and Validation Program is assessing its financial future and looking to reduce costs.
In its report, NASA's Office of Inspector General made several recommendations to help the agency secure its assets. Those outlined in the audit include reducing occupancy in some buildings on the campus, reading in part, "By continuing to occupy and maintain Building 1, NASA is paying more than necessary in operation and maintenance expenses."
It estimates that NASA could save as much as $9.7 million within a three-year period if the IV&V Program took steps to reduce these expenses.
NASA IV&V plans to initiate these changes by the end of the year.
