Third-Party Contracting and Procurement Tips Webinar (December 13)

In recent years, procurement has become increasingly challenging. The COVID-19 pandemic worsened existing supply chain issues, making it harder for the transit industry to procure everything from mini-vans to seat covers.

Join FTA’s Office of Acquisition Management staff on Tuesday, December 13 at a webinar providing an overview of third-party contracting and procurement practices and suggestions on how to tackle challenging procurement issues. FTA staff will suggest ways to minimize confusion around escalating item and service costs while providing best practices for the pre-solicitation, solicitation, and post-solicitation phases of the procurement process, including the best ways to structure solicitations. 

The 2 p.m. ET webinar will also include a question-and-answer session. Registration is required. Contact James Harper of the FTA Office of Acquisition Management at with any questions.
