Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) access control systems, focusing on the: (1) cost of FAA access control systems; and (2) actions FAA could take to ensure that access control systems are cost-effective in the future.
Recommendations for Executive Action
|Department of Transportation||1. The Secretary of Transportation should direct the Administrator, FAA, to develop and implement detailed guidance based on FAA access control requirements that explains where system equipment should be located.|
|Federal Aviation Administration||2. FAA should incorporate these guidelines and the standards being developed into its review process for Airport Improvement Program funding requirements.|
