May 06, 2008
Project ID: 08A3009A000
At the request of the Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, we plan to review the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) progress in developing the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). Consistent with this request, our objectives are to review (1) NextGen’s impact on FAA’s Joint Planning and Development Office’s partner agencies’ research and capital budgets, (2) FAA’s progress in response to our February 2007 recommendations, (3) issues that need to be addressed to shift NextGen from research and development to implementation in a timely manner, and (4) the role of external user review and input into key NextGen policy matters.
