A Cost Allocation Study of FAA's FY 1995 Costs

This report presents a summary of the 1995 Cost Allocation Study (CAS) conducted for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) by GRA, Incorporated. The CAS is intended to provide a base of information for the establishment of user fees and/or aviation taxes to finance FAA's programs. Prior FAA cost allocation studies have been used as references to support the authorization of taxes which were paid into the Airport and Airway Trust Fund to finance all of FAA's capital programs and a portion of its operating budget. In addition to potential reauthorization of aviation taxes, there have been a number of proposals to change the manner in which FAA is financed. Data from the CAS can be used to examine the feasibility of alternative financing mechanisms and their impact on the relative share of FAA's costs borne by various types of aviation users and the general taxpayer. In addition, the CAS provides detailed data on both the costs of producing FAA services and on who uses these services. The table of contents lists the following chapter headings: 1. Executive Summary, 2. Overview of the 1995 Cost Allocation Study, 3. Measurement of FAA Lines of Business Costs, 4. Allocation of Non-Air Traffic Services Lines of Business Costs to Users, 5. Allocation of Air Traffic Services Costs to Users, 6. Allocation of FAA Costs to Users.
