The Office of Inspector General conducted a review to evaluate the management of the human-rating requirements for the Ares I Project. Specifically, our objectives were to determine whether NASA had adequately developed the human-rating requirements and incorporated them into the program and project plans. We also reviewed internal controls as they related to the overall objective.
We found that the Agency incorporated the human-rating requirements found in NASA Procedural Requirements (NPR) 8705.2B, "Human-Rating Requirements for Space Systems," May 6, 2008, in the appropriate documents. We also noted no weaknesses in internal controls. Accordingly, this final report contains no recommendations.
