The Administration Facility is a building at the Kerbal Space Center and became available with the release of update 0.25. [1]


The Administration Facility is a facility which will let the player to choose from different strategies to boost certain aspects of the program. For example, science gains can be boosted at the expense of the reputation gains or vice versa. There are currently eight strategies available to players.

The Administrative facility is found just behind the astronaut complex.

Resource exchange strategy

Most of the strategies, as of 0.25 six of them, will trade one of the resources gained through contracts into another one. These "trade offs" occur by taking a percentage of the gain of one resource, and increasing the gain for another. After a strategy is enabled the difference applied through the strategies will be shown in parentheses after the resource. The gains on contracts are already applied and display the total change. For example if the result shows “99 (9)”, then the value was originally 90 and through the strategy additional 9 units were gained with a total of 99.

It is only possible to convert at most 100 % of a resource into other resources. Later strategies can only be applied to the remaining resources, but their percentages always apply to the original value.

Other strategies

Two strategies do not do this, one, "Aggressive negotiations", reduces the cost of launches but simultaneously causes reputation loss for every launch. And the other, "Transponder fitting", increases the money returned from each recovery but increases launch costs.
