Amtrak Procurement Policy Violated

June 11, 2012 |  Investigative Summaries

OIG investigation disclosed that an Amtrak employee circumvented a company business practice intended to limit the tenure of independent contractors to 2 years. An independent contractor was retained for 7 years and was, in fact, retained for an additional year after a request to extend the contractor had been denied by the Amtrak Independent Contractor Review Panel. The method of paying this contractor, using multiple payment requests in amounts under $5,000 each, was also found to be questionable.
