Effective November 1, 2008, this circular is a re-issuance of guidance for post-award grant administration and project management activities for all applicable Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grant programs. This revision incorporates provisions of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient, Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU), and includes the most up-to-date available guidance for these programs. These requirements are intended to assist grantees in administering FTA-funded projects and in meeting grant responsibilities and reporting requirements. Grantees have a responsibility to comply with regulatory requirements and to be aware of all pertinent material to assist in the management of federally-assisted grants.
On 1 Nov 2008, this circular superseded FTA Circular 5010.1C, “Grant Management Guidelines,” dated October 1, 1998.
