Notice of proposed Buy America waiver and request for comment.
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) received a request for a waiver to permit the purchase of replacement gondola components that are non-compliant with Buy America requirements using FTA funding. The request is from the Colorado Department of Transportation on behalf of the Town of Mountain Village for its public transportation gondola system. In accordance with 49 U.S.C. 5323(j)(3)(A), FTA is providing notice of the waiver request and seeks public comment before deciding whether to grant the request. If granted, the waiver would apply only to FTA-funded procurements by Mountain Village necessary for the current gondola refurbishment projects described herein.
