GAO Recommends Risk Assessment for FAA’s NextGen Global Interoperability Efforts

AirportRunwayThe Government Accountability Office has reviewed the Federal Aviation Administration‘s strategy to establish interoperability between the Next Generation Air Transportation System and international air traffic management modernization efforts.

GAO said in a July report to Congress that FAA should perform a thorough risk assessment to understand and mitigate potential challenges in the effort to develop a global aviation network with interoperable air traffic management systems.

According to the report, aviation industry stakeholders identified challenges such as the timing or coordination of different countries’ modernization efforts and potential disagreements between air navigation service providers on the desired outcome.

GAO also noted that FAA’s international strategic plan for interoperability meets five of its six indicators for an effective strategy.

The recommended risk assessment approach will work to further bolster FAA’s global interoperability efforts, the report said.
