NASA implements full-cost accounting at the NASA field centers.10 In addition, these data will be required before OSS can respond appropriately to Recommendation 3 of the 1998 report.

CONCLUDING REMARKS

The Board believes that OSS's proposals for responding to the recommendations of the 1998 report are moving in the right direction. It cannot, however, be confident that these recommendations will be met until an explicit implementation plan is available. The Board is prepared to assist OSS in any way it can.
