Because of the seriousness. of these allegations by a subcontractor in connection with the SAFE Project contract between this Agency and TRW, I must ask that you request substantiation of the allegations from your subcontractor. In order for me and for the other senior officials at the Agency to focus on charges, I request that you ask for the background and circumstances surrounding the. accusations. I am well aware of the tenor of his letter, but I must have details to amplify thosecprovided and the conclusions expressed. Please ask him to identify the persons involved, what was said or written, and the dates concerned. tivhen he provides these particulars and any other matters of substance, they will be timely examined. It must be understood that all decisions with respect to the SAFE Project will be made on the basis of what is in the best interests of the United States .and this Agency in the performance of its mission.

These decisions sometimes are difficult t~i~--make. ?and may work a hardship on those various levels within the contract process.
