Engagement Memo—Audit of Real Property Management
The Office of Inspector General (OIG) is initiating an audit to assess Amtrak’s real property management functions. Our objective is to determine whether opportunities exist to increase cost-effectiveness by reducing, consolidating, and/or monetizing owned and leased properties.
During the audit, we plan to interview relevant Amtrak (the company) officials responsible for managing the company’s real property. We also plan to analyze documents and data related to real property management. Our request for documents will be made as our work progresses. We also will work to minimize the impact of the audit by coordinating interviews and observations with staff in advance.
