Semiannual Report to Congress #40 (April 1, 2009 through September 30, 2009)
On behalf of the Amtrak Office of Inspector General (OIG), I am pleased to present this Semiannual Report to Congress. The OIG Report highlights significant audits, evaluations, and investigations for the six-month period ending March 31, 2009.
It is the OIG’s responsibility to assist the Board and management in making improvements in Amtrak’s core business operations which will improve the safety, reliability, and effectiveness of Amtrak services to the traveling public. The current semiannual report identifies some of the recent recommendations that the OIG has made which have resulted in cost savings, improved management policies and procedures, improved revenues, less cost, and more efficient and effective business processes.
