Top Management Challenges
DOT's FY 2009 Top Management Challenges
On November 17, we publicly released our annual report on the top management challenges facing the Department in FY 2009, as required by law. The issues comprising this year’s report are: enhancing aviation safety and maintaining confidence in FAA’s ability to provide effective oversight of a rapidly changing industry; enhancing mobility and reducing congestion in America’s transportation system; developing a plan to address projected highway and transit funding shortfalls; maximizing the return on current highway and transit infrastructure investments; operating the National Airspace System while developing and transitioning to the Next Generation Air Transportation System; protecting against increasing cyber security risks and enhancing the protection of personally identifiable information; preventing catastrophic failures and obsolescence in the nation’s aging surface transportation infrastructure; improving contract operations and maintaining procurement integrity; and enhancing and deploying programs for reducing the serious consequences of surface transportation crashes. This report was included in the Department’s FY 2008 Performance and Accountability Report.
