Abstract : This report is in response to your request that we review proposed staffing cuts at the National Weather Service (NWS), a component of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) within the Department of Commerce. The objective of our review, based on subsequent discussions with your staff, was to assess the NWS analysis supporting the planned closure of its southern regional headquarters office, and its analysis of alternative plans for maintaining its current regional structure of four mainland offices.
