Audit Initiated of FRA’s Progress Implementing the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008
As required by Section 221 of the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008 (PRIIA), the Office of Inspector General is initiating its second audit to assess the Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA) progress in implementing the Act. This comprehensive statute dramatically expanded FRA’s role in improving the Nation’s passenger rail operations and facilities. Our objectives are to: (1) examine FRA’s progress to date in implementing its PRIIA responsibilities; and (2) identify any challenges to completing the implementation.
