Subject: Message from the Director - Enhancing Communication

At the January 7 all-hands and other venues, people have suggested ideas for enhancing the flow of communications at the Center. Clearly, there is much happening very rapidly at NASA these days, and everyone needs to follow the details closely. Therefore, I am planning to implement the following:

A Monthly All-hands. We are planning to hold an all-hands every month concerning some topic of general interest. I will begin this effort in February, after the release of the FY 06 budget. Other members of the senior staff could follow up with all-hands sessions focusing on the "belt tightening moves" in office space and other areas, or generation of new business.

An "Inside Ames" frequently asked questions (FAQ) website. We will establish a site on the Ames intranet where employees can submit questions, and then Center management will post answers to FAQs.

We will provide additional information on these plans as it becomes available.

People also suggested that we post the charts from the January 7 all-hands. A link to the pdf version of the presentation file has been published to

I hope very much that measures like these will help the flow of accurate, timely information, and avoid misunderstandings.
