New Audit Announcements
Follow-up Audit Initiated of NAFTA Cross-Border Safety Requirements
Section 350(c) of the Department of Transportation and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2002 and subsequent appropriations legislation through 2012 prohibits FMCSA from using Federal funds to review or process Mexico–domiciled motor carrier applications to operate beyond United States commercial zones until certain safety requirements are met. This legislation also requires that OIG review the safety requirements related to Mexico–domiciled motor carrier operations. Our audit objectives will be to determine whether: (1) FMCSA continues to comply with the safety requirements set forth in Section 350(c); and (2) FMCSA has taken sufficient action to implement our prior recommendations for improving its capacity to perform bus inspections at United States–Mexico border crossings.
