Audit Initiated of FAA’s Implementation of RTCA’s NextGen Task Force Recommendations
The Office of Inspector General plans to review the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA's) actions to address the recommendations of a joint Government/industry task force, known as “RTCA Task Force 5.” The task force was convened to report on steps that FAA and industry should take over the next three to five years to begin efficiently transitioning to the Next Generation Air Transportation System. We are conducting this review at the request of the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and its Subcommittee on Aviation. Our audit objectives are to assess the extent to which FAA is: (1) responding to the recommendations, including adjusting its budgets and establishing mechanisms for continued industry collaboration; and (2) addressing barriers that may hinder its ability to successfully implement the recommendations.
