INFORMATION ON ALLEGED CONRAIL MISMANAGEMENT OF CONTRACTING AND TRACK REHABILITATION IN ITS TOLEDO AND FT. WAYNE DIVISIONS

GAO could not substantiate allegations that Conrail had mismanaged (1) contracts for derailment and crew transportation services and (2) track rehabilitation. According to Conrail studies, contracting for derailment and crew transportation services is generally economical because the services are required infrequently or sporadically. GAO did not find evidence of poor rehabilitation on three track sections, and concludes the allegation was based on incomplete and/or inaccurate information.
