We issued our annual report on the top management challenges facing the Department. For fiscal year 2015, DOT faces seven major challenges: (1) modernizing the National Airspace System and addressing organizational challenges; (2) enhancing safety and oversight of a diverse and dynamic U.S. aviation industry; (3) increasing efforts to promote highway, vehicle, pipeline, and hazmat safety; (4) improving oversight, project delivery, and system performance of surface transportation programs; (5) leveraging existing funding mechanisms to finance surface transportation projects in a challenging fiscal environment; (6) managing acquisitions and grants to maximize performance and save Federal funds; and (7) securing information technology resources. This report was included in the Department’s Annual Financial Report, as required by law.
