Under this Electronic FAA Accelerated and Simplified Tasks (eFAST) task order contract, CSSI will help the ATO accomplish its overall mission to improve safety and reduce risk in the National Airspace System (NAS).

CSSI will focus on applying safety management system principles across the ATO, building usable safety information from diverse data sources, and facilitating safety performance improvements. The contract covers one base year with up to four one-year options.
