Audit Initiated of FAA’s Progress With Implementing High-Priority NextGen Capabilities
The Office of Inspector General is initiating a follow-up audit on the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) progress with implementing high-priority Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) capabilities. We are conducting this audit at the request of the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and its Subcommittee on Aviation. In September 2013, the NextGen Advisory Committee (NAC) identified industry’s top priorities for NextGen. In November 2014, we issued an interim report on FAA’s response to the NAC’s priorities. Our audit objectives in this follow-up audit will be to evaluate FAA’s (1) process for identifying risks to implementing the four prioritized NextGen capabilities, and (2) actions to mitigate any identified risks.
