Audit Initiated of FAA's Implementation of the Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing (ASIAS) System
The Office of Inspector General plans to review the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) use of information systems for improving air carrier oversight, specifically the Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing (ASIAS) system. First implemented in 2007, ASIAS is a tool that collects and analyzes data from multiple databases to proactively identify and address safety risks that may lead to accidents. We are conducting this review in accordance with a provision in the Airline Safety and FAA Extension Act of 2010. Our audit objectives will be to assess FAA’s: (1) progress in implementing ASIAS; (2) process and plan for allowing system access at both field and headquarters levels; and (3) use of ASIAS data to assist in commercial air carrier safety oversight.
