U.S. DOT to Review MWAA’s Policies, Practices, Ashburn Patch, June 22, 2011

Action comes at request of Wolf, Latham as agency finishes audit of Metro extension. 


Starting next week, the U.S. Department of Transportation plans to analyze the “management policies and practices” of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority at the request of congressmen Frank R. Wolf (R-VA-10) and Tom Latham (R-IA-4).

The move comes as the agency wraps up an audit of the first phase of the Metro’s Silver Line project to Dulles Airport. MWAA was granted control over that project, but recent disagreements with participating jurisdictions about whether to place the rail stop at Dulles underground, what type of labor will be used and who will pay for cost overruns on phase 2 have led to much finger pointing.
