The OIG is initiating an audit of Amtrak's processes for managing its capital programs. The objective of this audit is to determine the adequacy of Amtrak's capital program management practices to include policies and procedures for managing its capital programs in the areas of estimating, scheduling, oversight, and project close-out. During the audit, OIG Audit personnel and OIG contractors will meet with individuals responsible for capital program management and oversight, analyze documents associated with Amtrak's capital program management processes, review contract management files and research best practices in capital program management.
