Audit Initiated of the Productivity of FAA's Air Traffic Control Towers
The Office of Inspector General plans to initiate an audit of the productivity of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) air traffic control towers. We are conducting this audit in response to a request from the Chairmen of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and its Subcommittee on Aviation. Knowledge of which air traffic control towers operate relatively more efficiently will aid determination of which factors affect air traffic control tower productivity. The objective of this audit is to assess the relative efficiency of FAA air traffic control towers.
