Audit Initiated of FAA’s Progress on Addressing ATCOTS Recommendations
As directed in the Explanatory Statement accompanying the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015, the Office of Inspector General is conducting a follow-up review of the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Air Traffic Control Optimum Training Solution (ATCOTS) contract. In 2008, FAA awarded the $859 million ATCOTS contract, intended to provide up to 10 years of training support and to assist in modernizing the training program. On December 18, 2013, we reported that the ATCOTS contract continues to face challenges, and made 10 recommendations for improving FAA’s oversight of the ATCOTS contract. The objective for this audit is to assess FAA’s progress on addressing the recommendations from our December 2013 report.
