New Audit Announcements
Audit Initiated of FAA’s Acquisition Workforce Training, Certification, and Warrant Compliance
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) shares the Governmentwide challenge of attracting and retaining talented and trained individuals who can plan, manage, and oversee contracts to ensure that agencies obtain the best value for their mission-critical goods and services. Within FAA’s acquisition workforce, the three key professions responsible for awarding and administering contracts include: Contracting Officers (COs), Contracting Officer’s Representatives (CORs), and Program/Project Managers (P/PMs). Given the sustained Governmentwide focus on developing a high-performing acquisition workforce and the importance of this workforce to managing FAA’s multibillion-dollar contract budget, we are initiating an audit of FAA’s certification and warrant processes for COs, CORs, and P/PMs. Our objective for this self-initiated audit is to assess FAA’s oversight and compliance with Federal and Agency requirements for acquisition workforce training, certification, and warrants.
