  • Abstract:
    The Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) timely acquisition of new air

    traffic control equipment has become increasingly critical for aviation safety

    and efficiency. However, persistent acquisition problems raise questions about

    the agency's ability to field new equipment within cost, schedule, and

    performance parameters. Concerned about recurring problems with FAA's

    acquisitions, Congress asked General Accounting Office (GAO) to review

    the agency's management of the acquisition process to (1) determine whether

    the organizational culture1 contributed to FAA's acquisition problems and

    (2) identify how FAA could improve its management of acquisitions through

    cultural change, if culture is a contributing factor. This report contains

    the GAO's findings and recommendations to the Secretary of Transportation.
