Recommendation Details
Text of Recommendation
We recommend the Administrator, Transportation Security Administration, designate a lead office responsible for establishing internal controls, conducting routine oversight, and providing quality assurance for the implementation of outstanding legislative mandates in the 9/11 Act and TSA Modernization Act, as well as future legislation. This should include: a. establishing formal policies and procedures for resolving and closing legislative mandates to include:  analyzing critically supporting documentation;  reviewing details and assessing the sufficiency and timeliness of actions taken; and  documenting its review and conclusions reached. b. developing a reliable system to enable more complete and accurate tracking of existing and future legislative mandates to ensure all relevant documentation is properly archived and retrievable. c. ensuring TSA documents requirements and maintains correspondence with Congress and the Inspector General regarding those requirements that are challenging and cannot be done timely due to external factors, as well as identifying redundant requirements in other legislation so TSA can avoid duplicative efforts.
