File Attachment

The Office of Inspector General is initiating an audit on the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) response to recommendations for Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) investment priorities from the NextGen Advisory Committee (NAC). At FAA’s request, the NAC issued a report in September 2013 with recommendations for prioritizing NextGen activities and investments based on their benefits and implementation readiness. Our audit objectives are to (1) identify the steps FAA is taking to address the NAC’s recommended investment priorities and (2) evaluate FAA’s plans for implementation.
