Uhm....this is the private sector. This is Boeing's attempt to match the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule. NASA is paying for it, but this is all on Boeing and their inability to do anything right lately. NASA also helped pay to develop the Crew Dragon. Both were developed under the Commercial Crew Program.
What caused the valves to malfunction isn’t clear, although Boeing said in an earlier statement that they had ruled out software problems. One possibility is damage such as water intrusion during a severe thunderstorm shortly after the rocket was rolled out to the pad Aug. 2.
