File Attachment

We issued our annual report on the top management challenges facing the Department. For fiscal year 2016, DOT faces eight major challenges: (1) addressing the increasing public safety risks posed by the transportation of hazardous materials, (2) integrating unmanned aircraft systems safely into the National Airspace System, (3) enhancing NHTSA’s efforts to identify and investigate vehicle safety defects, (4) protecting the Department against more complex and aggressive cyber security threats, (5) adopting effective practices for managing FAA acquisitions, (6) improving oversight of FHWA’s and FTA’s surface infrastructure programs, (7) removing high risk motor carriers from the Nation’s roads, (8) developing and sustaining an effective and skilled DOT workforce. This report was included in the Department’s Annual Financial Report, as required by law.
