David Grizzle: FAA Office Consolidation Delayed

The Federal Aviation Administration’s modernization project is awaiting further development because of delayed air traffic control facilities consolidation, an agency official recently said, according to Fierce Government IT.

The FAA currently has 542 facilities and the first planned consolidation in the New York-New Jersey-Philadelphia region is delayed until May 2013, said David Grizzle, chief operating officer of the NextGen program, David Perera reported.

Grizzle testified before the House Transportation and Infrastructure subcommittee on aviation Thursday.

Lou Dixon, the Transportation Department’s principal assistant inspector general, told lawmakers  that the recent FAA authorization bill does not provide sufficient funding for the planned consolidations.
