Abstract : This document concerns the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) efforts and plans to decrease its staffing levels. In the early 1990s, NASA had projected an essentially flat workforce profile of about 25,500 full-time equivalent (FTE) employees through fiscal year 2000. NASA currently plans to lower this figure to about 17,500 by fiscal year 2000. This report discusses NASA's progress and its approach to achieving further reductions.
