    • Abstract:
      As the threat of terrorist activities has increased in the United States, the need to improve domestic aviation security has grown. Currently, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), other federal agencies, and the aviation industry are implementing 31 recommendations on aviation security made by the White House Commission on Aviation Safety and Security. Some of these recommendations are similar to legislative mandates enacted by the Congress under the Federal Aviation Reauthorization Act of 1996. The expeditious implementation of these recommendations 1 by federal agencies and the aviation industry is crucial to strengthening the security of the domestic aviation system. This report responds to your request for information on the tracking, monitoring, and coordinating activities undertaken by the agencies responsible for implementing the recommendations made by the Commission and on FAA?s progress in implementing eight of these recommendations, five of which are similar to mandates contained in the Reauthorization Act of 1996. As agreed with your offices, this report addresses the following specific questions: (1) How do the federal agencies responsible for implementing aviation security recommendations track, monitor, and coordinate their activities? (2) What progress has FAA made in implementing three of the Commission's aviation security recommendations that were scheduled to be completed in fiscal year 1997 and have all implementation issues been resolved? (3) What progress has FAA made in implementing five recommendations that were both recommended by the Commission and mandated by the Congress in 1996, and what major issues need to be addressed before they can be fully implemented?
