The Office of Audits conducts independent and objective performance and financial audits across the spectrum of Amtrak’s support and operational activities. It produces reports on those activities aimed at improving Amtrak’s economy, efficiency, and effectiveness, while seeking to detect and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse.



The Office of Investigations pursues allegations of fraud, waste, abuse, and misconduct that could affect Amtrak’s programs, operations, assets, and other resources. Investigative findings are referred to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution or civil litigation, or to Amtrak management for administrative action. The office develops recommendations to reduce Amtrak’s vulnerability to criminal activity.
