In order to respond to this mission change while remaining within its workforce and budgetary constraints, NASA has realized that it must develop a flexible, scalable workforce.

Three specific issues addressed were what is a healthy center, and how should NASA measure it, how should NASA decide whether to obtain services from a contractor or a civil service employee, and if NASA decides to hire a civil servant, how should it decide what kind of appointment to use? The report contains NAPA's findings and recommendations.
