Abstract : We are pleased to be here today to discuss our current work on the International Space Station program. Earlier this year, Senator Bumpers and Representative Dingell asked us to update information we reported in July 1996 on the status of the program's financial reserves and the prime contract's cost and schedule variances and estimates at completion. They also asked that we identify the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) actions to maintain the program within its funding limitation. Our testimony today is based on our work on this request.
