fiscal year (FY) 1995 and planned for subsequent years; and program management within the PNGV.
Key questions for which the committee sought information and insight include the following:
Are the broad priorities established for the PNGV program reasonable?
Are there obvious potential technologies not being considered as candidates for the PNGV concept vehicles?
Does the PNGV program have detailed plans sufficient to adequately describe the work effort and permit effective program management of dedicated resources?
Does the PNGV program have an effective program management structure for the government and industry organizations involved?
Does the PNGV program have adequate and dedicated levels of funding and resources required to accomplish the goals and schedules specified in the program plan?
Is the PNGV program considering all pertinent sources of technology?
This report attempts to answer these overarching questions.
