Federal Aviation Administration Fiscal Year 2010 Business Plan: Government and Industry Affairs

The first impression, and indeed, in some cases, the only contact Members of Congress and their staff have with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is with the Office of Government and Industry Affairs. This customer-oriented office, small by comparison to most every other organization in the FAA, works directly for the Administrator, and is the principal linkage between the agency and the legislative branch of government. AGI works with other staff organizations to coordinate and present the FAA's legislative message. It is AGI that must work with other organizations within the FAA to facilitate their relations with Congress. And it is AGI that must consistently monitor and gauge the interest and needs of the members and leadership on Capitol Hill. AGI also coordinates our legislative initiatives and responses with the Department of Transportation. This kind of vigorous outreach is not limited to Congress. AGI also serves as liaison with the aviation industry, from manufacturers to carriers, and with other aviation related organizations. Additionally, AGI also serves as the principal point of contact for state and local governments.
