Fiscal Year 2011 Annual Audit, Inspection and Evaluation Plan
I am pleased to present the Fiscal Year 2011 Annual Audit, Inspection, and Evaluation Plan for the Amtrak Office of Inspector General. This year promises to be another challenging and demanding one as we attempt to address the many complex issues confronting Amtrak in its daily effort to provide high quality passenger rail transportation to the nation. This plan outlines the areas where we intend to undertake audit, evaluation, and inspection work during this fiscal year, summarizes our most recent reports, and discusses our ongoing projects. We focused on our core mission of conducting independent and objective audits, inspections, and evaluations -- to promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in Amtrak's programs and operations; and to prevent and detect fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement.
