Letter to Chairman Henry Waxman Regarding Key DOT/OIG Open Recommendations
On February 29, we responded to Chairman Waxman's December 7, 2007, letter requesting that the DOT OIG provide a list of recommendations it has made from January 1, 2001, to the present that have not been implemented by agency officials or by Congress. We identified 168 key recommendations, included in 81 audit reports, which remain open for the Department. We also reported four key recommendations, contained in one audit report, that are currently open for NTSB. We defined "key" open recommendations as recommendations that address significant safety, security, and oversight issues, or provide financial benefits.
