*Griffin Press Conference Excerpts (More to follow)*
***Editor's note:* On personnel changes at HQ: Griffin said there would
be some but would only provide specifics on one: that Scott Pace,/// "a
non career SES"/, would lead a new Program Analysis and Evaluation Office.
*_On CEV acceleration:_**//**/_ "we are going to rethink our entire
program_/*/// in that area because, as is well known, publicly released,
we're talking about flying the CEV with crew in 2014. Members of
Congress have indicated to me that they consider that unacceptable.
People in the Executive branch have indicated that they think that it is
not advisable. And it doesn't work for me either. So, we're going to be
reviewing those plans/*//**/_. If that requires that we delay the
responses to the RFP that is out on the street, then so be it._/*///
Better to take a little time up front and get what we really want."/
On Roadmapping:/// "/*//**/_I don't think that the roadmap activities
are on a pace that is consistent with the decision making that we have
to do. I will probably be establishing focused, small teams,
representing a breadth of experience throughout NASA - throughout the
centers - a_/*///nd targeted other institutions as necessary in order to
be helping with some of these larger scale architectural issues."/
