Audit of the Air Cargo Security Program
The objective of this audit, which was initiated prior to September 11, 2001, was to assess the Department's oversight of cargo security requirements. We found that in the wake of September 11th, FAA and TSA have undertaken a number of improvements to strengthen cargo security. We also made additional recommendations to enhance the air cargo security regimen. The Transportation Security Administration has concurred with and is beginning to implement these recommendations.
This report contains sensitive security information, and TSA at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will determine if any portions are publicly released. For additional information, contact the DOT Inspector General's Freedom of Information Act Office at 202.366.8751.
