The fed. govt. spends billions of dollars on info. tech. (IT) projects each year. Consequently, it is important that projects be managed effectively to ensure that public resources are wisely invested. To this end, the OMB identifies major projects and requires agencies to identify high-risk projects that are performing poorly. At times, changes to this info. -- called a re-baselining -- are made to reflect changed development circumstances. These changes can be done for valid reasons, but can also be used to mask cost overruns and schedule delays. This report: (1) provides an update on these

NASA plans to invest billions in the coming years in science and exploration space flight initiatives. The scientific and technical complexities inherent in NASA's mission create great challenges in managing its projects and controlling costs. In the past, NASA has had difficulty meeting cost, schedule, and performance objectives for some of its projects. The need to effectively manage projects will gain even more importance as NASA seeks to manage its portfolio in an increasingly constrained fiscal environ. This is an independent assessment of selected NASA projects. It compares projects agai
