Audit Initiated of DOT's Rulemaking Tracking System

We began an audit of the DOT system for tracking rulemaking, at the request of Rep. James L. Oberstar, Ranking Minority Member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Our objectives are to determine how effective DOT is in managing its rulemaking process and meeting its deadlines using the new tracking system, specifically: (1) how many rulemakings were completed on schedule; (2) whether rules are being delayed, where the biggest delays occur, and the lengths of delays; and (3) best practices for improving the rulemaking process.
