You might want to check track records for delivery times and cost overruns before doing that.

NASA's biggest problem is that it's a protected monopoly in a business that shouldn't be anymore.

Why not establish the XXXX prize? Put up 100G$ (you're that rich, right?) to the first team that can land a three person team on the moon, let them live there for a month and then come back home safely? Set the deadline to Dec 25, 2015. Let NASA compete if they want to. Let's see if they can get a little more efficient with a carrot and some competition.
