FTA’s FY 2018 Certifications and Assurances (C&As) are now available to PIN in TrAMS. Each applicant must submit applicable FY 2018 C&As before FTA may award federal assistance to support that applicant’s request. Users with the Official, Attorney, and Submitter roles will receive system-generated emails regarding the C&As. Please be advised the C&A module in TrAMS has changed and requires the Official to PIN first, followed by the Attorney.
Important to Note if You Are an Official Signing on Behalf of An Attorney
- FTA encourages independent certification by the Official and Attorney.
- However, FTA allows for the Attorney or Official to complete the electronic certification process on “Behalf of Both.”
- Both User Roles are required in TrAMS (proper paperwork must be filed before these roles may be assigned).
- A hard or paper copy of the C&As with both the Official and Attorney’s signatures, with the same category selections, must be uploaded to TrAMS within the C&A Module at the same time the Official PINs the C&A.
Please feel free to distribute this information throughout your organization as appropriate. If you have any questions, please contact your FTA Region 3 Community Planner or Transportation Program Specialist.
