A DOT Office of Inspector General audit found that while the FAA is investing billions of dollars in new technology, it hasn’t kept up with facilities needed for ATC activities. According to the audit, “The FAA is encountering maintenance problems at several facilities due to its previous, decentralized approach to facility maintenance and its lack of a structured process for funding recurring maintenance.”
