NASA Pays Sky-High $66 a Person for Seminar Snacks

Thursday, 25 Mar 2010 01:24 PM

A government watchdog says the nation's space agency paid the out-of-this-world price of $66 a person a day for bagels, cookies and juice at a conference.

The subject of the NASA seminar? It was a training session for its procurement officials — the people who do the buying with taxpayer funds. They were talking about how to determine reasonable prices.

The NASA Inspector General said that during the three-day conference in Baltimore in 2008, the 317 attendees snacked on soda, coffee, fruit, bagels and cookies at a cost of more than $62,000.

NASA has promised it will come up with better conference spending rules.
