Audit Initiated of DOT's Implementation of MAP-21’s Acceleration of Project Delivery Provisions
Subtitle C of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act of 2012 (MAP-21) calls for the Department of Transportation to implement several initiatives to accelerate highway and bridge project delivery, including a rulemaking regarding the environmental review process and reports to Congress on environmental actions. MAP-21 also requires OIG to make two assessments of the Department’s implementation of these requirements and submit a final report to Congress within 4 years of enactment. In May 2013, we issued our first report. The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act—known as the FAST Act—which the President signed in December 2015, continues the MAP-21 Subtitle C initiatives. For this final audit, our objectives are to: (1) provide a status of the Department’s actions to carry out MAP-21 Subtitle C provisions, and (2) identify possible vulnerabilities in the Department’s implementation of these actions.
