Subject: Limited Buyout/Early-Out At JSC

Recent buyouts at five NASA Centers did not result in a large enough increase in attrition to allow the Agency to rebalance its workforce to meet current mission and budget goals, and support the new Exploration Vision.  As a result, the Agency has extended Buyout and Early Out Authority to all centers and asked all centers to participate.

Our buyout/early-out plan has been approved by NASA Headquarters.  In accordance with NASA Headquarters guidelines, this plan is very limited and targeted to specific excess competencies and/or functions within JSC.  The positions included were reviewed and approved by organizational and Center Management.  Employees who may be eligible will be notified by their supervisors.  The eligible employees may then volunteer for buyout consideration.  Those who receive final approval must be off the Center's rolls by April 3, 2005.

In addition, you can get your benefits statement and information on how a buyout/early-out may affect you at

Please direct all questions to JSC's Human Resources Customer Service Desk at 281-483-0476.

Karl Schuler Acting Director of Human Resources
