Notice of availability of proposed circular and request for comments.
FTA has placed in the docket and on its Web site proposed guidance in the form of proposed FTA Circular, 5010.1E, ``Award Management Requirements,'' to facilitate implementation of FTA's assistance programs. The purpose of the proposed circular is to update the current ``Grants Management Requirements'' circular to reflect various changes in the law, regulations, and FTA's transition to a new electronic award and management system. The proposed circular provides guidance regarding the management responsibilities accompanying FTA awards of federal assistance through Grants and Cooperative Agreements. By this notice, FTA seeks public comment on the proposed circular.
