On March 6, the Inspector General testified before the House Appropriations Transportation Subcommittee regarding the major issues facing the Department in terms of linking program requirements and budgetary resources for the short and long term, challenges in the areas of aviation and surface safety, and getting the most from our Federal transportation infrastructure dollars. The Inspector General identified three cross-cutting areas: (1) establishing funding requirements for FY 2008 and beyond for aviation and intercity passenger rail;
(2) transportation safety; and (3) contract, grant, and project oversight.
