We respectfully submit the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak) Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) fiscal year (FY) 2024 budget proposal. We are requesting $30,410,000 to support our mission of providing effective and meaningful oversight of Amtrak (the company).

Our required support to CIGIE increased for FY 2024, which we have budgeted for in our request. In accordance with the Inspector General Reform Act of 2008, Pub. L. No. 110-409, we affirm that this funding is sufficient to satisfy these requirements and submit the following comments pursuant to Section 6(g) of the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended.
