Engagement Memo—Cost-Sharing on State-Supported Routes

July 16, 2020 |  Engagement Memos

We are initiating an audit of Amtrak’s processes for managing cost-sharing on state-supported routes. Our objective will be to evaluate the company’s actions to address longstanding concerns with the PRIIA 209 cost-sharing methodology and the company’s billing process with its State partners. We may expand our scope or modify our objective during the audit.


During the audit, we plan to analyze documents, invoices, and agreements related to State partner billing. We also plan to interview Amtrak and State government officials knowledgeable about the cost-sharing methodology and the state-supported billing process. We will work to minimize disruptions to the company by coordinating meetings with staff in advance.
