Update on the Methodology for Amtrak Cost Accounting Amtrak Performance Tracking (APT): Annual Update for Appendices A and B, Fiscal Year 2019

This document updates Appendices A and B from the Update on the Methodology for Amtrak Cost Accounting Amtrak Performance Tracking (APT). The 2016 report described Amtrak’s implemented APT cost allocation methodology and the report appendices displayed fiscal year (FY) 2014 summary data from Amtrak’s accounting system. Updates using FY 17 and FY 18 data were published in subsequent years. This document reports FY 2019 summary data. All data within were captured in December 2019 and consist of unaudited figures from APT allocated data available at that time and do not reflect any subsequent adjustments or corrections. The figures are intended only to provide a general snapshot of the relative size of Amtrak’s business and may not directly align with other published Amtrak reports, based on differences in reporting methodologies. The data described in the summary paragraphs and within the appendices should be viewed holistically and do not necessarily account for changes within the Cost Center (CC), Family, or Subfamily structures over time.
