In its report, the Senate investigations staff found that FAA has not effectively managed its en route computerized air traffic control system. Because of weaknesses in reporting equipment outages, lack of planning, and a poorly defined approach to managing system operations and software changes, FAA cannot be certain that the current system will operate at a level that will ensure the safety of the traveling public until the proposed replacement system is operational. The Senate investigations report contained nine recommendations to FAA. The Committee of Conference established reporting milestones for each of the recommendations. Further, the Committee of Conference directed that FAA report its actions on the recommendations to the appropriate committees by specific milestone dates. Author
