Change Orders on ARRA Projects

October 04, 2012 |  Engagement Memos

Amtrak received $1.3 billion under the American RecovelY and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) for infrastructure and security improvements. There was approximately $63 million in change orders on ARRA projects. This is to ad vise you that we are initiating a review to assess adequacy of the process to review and approve change orders. Our specific objective is to determine whether the amounts paid to accomplish change order work were adequately supported. We request that your office arrange an entrance conference for us with the appropriate Amtrak officials at the earliest possible date. We will keep you advised of the status of our work and any material changes in our audit objectives.
