FTA Issues Procurement Guidance for Grant Recipients

Published on: March 17, 2023

In recent months, several transit stakeholders have asked FTA to clarify recipients’ authority to amend the prices of existing contracts or to structure their contracts using advance or progress payments.

FTA has published guidance, in the form of frequently asked questions, to respond to these questions.

Additionally, FTA advises recipients to consult the Procurement Standards of the Uniform Administrative Requirements for Federal Awards (2 CFR 200.317-200.327) and FTA’s Circular 4220, Third-Party Contracting Guidance, for further information.

Recipients with questions about the requirements that apply to their federally funded procurements should contact their respective FTA regional offices.
