ACQUISITION AND PROCUREMENT: Adequate Competition for Most Contracts Awarded Under Americans with Disabilities Act Program but Procurement Policies Could be Improved

June 08, 2016 |  Audit Reports

The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act1 or the FAST Act included a requirement that we determine whether current expenditures or procurements involving Amtrak’s (the company) fulfillment of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 use competitive, market-driven provisions that are applicable throughout the entire term of such related expenditures or procurements. To accomplish this, we reviewed all ADA-related contracts awarded from October 1, 2012, to March 31, 2016. This represented 45 contracts valued at about $78 million.
