The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
On February 17, 2009, President Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) into law in response to the economic crisis facing the nation. The Act provides for unprecedented levels of transparency and accountability so that taxpayers know where their tax dollars are being spent. The Act requires the OIG and others to detect and prevent waste, fraud, or mismanagement of Recovery Act funds granted to Amtrak through the Department of Transportation. Consistent with the OIG’s ongoing mission, the Inspector General is committed to providing active oversight of Recovery Act funds throughout Amtrak programs, contracts, and grants.
To report an allegation of Fraud, Waste, or Abuse:
Please provide as much detail as possible about who, why, when, what, where, how, or how much about the incident. Although it is not necessary, you may provide your name and address if you wish. The Tip Hotline form does not use your e-mail address when the Tip Hotline form is submitted, and OIG will not attempt to identify you if you wish to remain anonymous.
