NASA and Terminating Contracts

I was surprised to learn that in 2010 NASA had 16,343 contracts in place for procurement of goods and services, of these only 28 were terminated. That’s less than 0.2% of their contracts.

Either NASA is very good at finding efficient vendors and accurately forecasting requirements and contingencies within the contract, or they aren’t being decisive enough in adapting to project changes or dealing with cases of extreme vendor underperformance.
