WASHINGTON, 7 Feb. 2009Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) officials announced that air traffic control modernization has been dropped from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) High Risk List after 14 years.

"Steady improvements in the FAA's financial management and strategies for fielding new air traffic technology have shown that we're committed to keeping these programs on track," says Acting Administrator Lynne Osmus. "Many FAA employees have worked very hard to get us where we are today."

The GAO first included FAA Air Traffic Control modernization on its biennial list of federal programs that are considered particular management challenges in 1995 because of previous cost overruns, schedule delays, and performance shortfalls. It was among the 27 programs and issues named in the GAO's 2007 High Risk List.
