NASA Falls Short of Decadal Recommendation for Research and Analysis Program Funding


Sept. 21, 2017

Using budget numbers obtained directly and through Freedom of Information Act requests, PSI Director Mark Sykes has conducted an analysis of NASA compliance with the Planetary Decadal Survey recommendation for growth in the support of Research and Analysis (R&A) programs. He concludes that the recommendation has not been met and that R&A programs may have been underfunded by almost $90M from FY13 through FY16. The budget data and its assessment is posted at http://planetarypolicy.org.
