Finally, NAVSEA should note in the draft memorandum that the Gathering Storm report was authored by the National Academies (NA), and not the National Academy of Sciences (NAS).
Overall the committee is supportive of the general thrust of the NAVSEA initiative. We believe that the overall budget and program will be more defensible if it is more carefully focused and there is a well laid out plan to track results back to clear objectives.
