"As required by law, we [Office of Inspector General ] have identified the Department of Transportation's (DOT) top management challenges for fiscal year 2011. […] We continue to build a body of work to assist DOT with its critical mission; improve the management and execution of programs; and protect its resources from fraud, waste, abuse, and violations of law. We considered several criteria in identifying the following nine challenges, including their impact on safety, documented vulnerabilities, large dollar implications, and DOT's ability to effect change in these areas: 1) Ensuring Transparency and Accountability in the Department's Recovery Act Programs 2) Maintaining Momentum in the Department's Oversight of Highway, Motor Vehicle, Hazardous Materials, and Transit Safety 3) Maintaining Momentum in Addressing Human Factors and Improving Safety Oversight of the Aviation Industry 4) Improving the Department's Oversight of Highway, Transit, and Pipeline Infrastructure 5) Identifying Sufficient Funding Sources To Support Future Federal Investment in Surface Transportation Infrastructure 6) Transforming the Federal Railroad Administration To Address Significantly Expanded Oversight Responsibilities 7) Advancing the Next Generation Air Transportation System While Ensuring the Safe and Efficient Operation of the National Airspace System 8) Implementing Processes To Improve the Department's Acquisitions and Contract Management 9) Improving the Department's Cyber Security".
