Audit Initiated of Underlying Causes for FAA's Limited NextGen Progress

Project ID: 12A3005A000


The Office of Inspector General plans to initiate an audit on the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) progress on making key decisions for implementing the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen).  We are conducting our review at the request of the Chairmen and the Ranking Members of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and Subcommittee on Aviation.  Our audit objectives will be to:  (1) assess FAA’s progress with meeting key milestones for achieving NextGen capabilities; (2) examine possible underlying causes for FAA’s limited progress with advancing NextGen overall; and (3) review FAA’s recent reorganization and other efforts to improve the management and execution of NextGen initiatives.
