On December 16, 2013, we issued our annual report on the top management challenges facing the Department in fiscal year 2014. The seven issues comprising this year’s report are as follows:  improving FAA’s oversight of the aviation industry and the operations of the National Airspace System; identifying and addressing root causes of problems with NextGen and setting investment priorities; continuing actions to strengthen highway, transit, and pipeline safety; improving oversight of surface infrastructure investments and implementing statutory requirements; implementing requirements to address the FRA’s expanded and traditional responsibilities; managing acquisitions and contracts to achieve results and save taxpayer dollars; and building a secure and modern information technology infrastructure. This report was included in the Department’s Annual Financial Report, as required by law.
