ABSTRACT
The article discusses the testimony of U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) for Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) implementation. GAO highlights that coordination for NextGen will be a challenge for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and its partner agencies due to lack of stable leadership, funding, and staffing. GAO suggests that organizational changes may improve such coordination. It also discusses the stakeholders' concerns on efforts to implement NextGen.
