GAO Speaks to Condition of FAA Facilities

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) is pushing for clearer information on the state of FAA facilities. To set the stage for a new study of FAA facilities, the GAO said, “Our preliminary analyses indicate that as of February [this year] FAA-staffed facilities are generally in fair to good condition based on their facility condition indices. However, we found that there is not one reliable source of information on the condition of the FAA’s entire staffed facility portfolio, while the methods to determine facility condition vary so that information about the condition of one type of facility may not be comparable to that of other facility types.” The GAO expects to complete its final report before year-end.
