Engagement Memo-Trespasser and Vehicle Strikes
We are initiating a review of Amtrak’s (the company) trespasser and vehicle strikes. Our objectives will be to assess the company’s efforts to reduce the risk of trespasser and vehicle strikes and to identify challenges or opportunities for improvement. We may expand our scope or modify our objectives during the review. During the review, we plan to interview company officials; assess related policies, documents, and procedures; conduct site visits; and analyze relevant company data. We will work to minimize disruptions to the company by coordinating meetings and site visits with staff in advance.
We will perform our work in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards. Our interactions with the company will be consistent with P/I 2.1.4, which sets forth the relationship between our office and the company. In particular, section 7.0 of the policy discusses coordination between company officials and our Office of Audits.
