Airport Compliance Application Suite (ACAS)

The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Airport Compliance Activity Suite (ACAS) consists of three sub-system enterprise-level applications used by Federal employees, contractors, and external airport entities to gather airport financial data using the Certification Activity Tracking System (CATS), address compliance issues at U.S. Airports using the Airport Compliance Division Compliance Database (ACODB), and allow for a publicly accessible archive of the outcome of complaints filed against airports using Part 16 Decision Database (Part 16). ACAS is authorized under 49 United States Code (U.S.C.) Sections 106(t), 3101, 40101, 42121, and 44701; Federal Aviation Reauthorization Act of 1996, Sections 341, 510, and 1210; FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, Section 180.

The FAA has published this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for the ACAS suite in accordance with Section 208 of the E-Government Act of 2002 because the system processes Personally Identifiable Information (PII) from members of the public, including public and private airports owners/airport employees, authorized airport representatives, sponsors, legal counsel, and complainants.
