New Audit Announcements
Audit Initiated on FAA's Organizational Structure
The Office of Inspector General plans to initiate an audit on the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) recent structural and organizational reforms. We are conducting this audit at the request of the Chairmen of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and its Subcommittee on Aviation. Over the past two decades, FAA has undergone several reorganizations and structural changes in an effort to improve its operation of the National Airspace System, such as the establishment of the Air Traffic Organization in 2000. Our audit objectives are to (1) determine whether FAA reforms implemented since 1995 have resulted in improved air traffic operations, reduced Agency costs, and expedited delivery of new technologies, and (2) compare the processes used by different countries to deliver air traffic services and implement new technologies.
