REGION 8 BULLETIN NO: 2013-13

Subject:  Demonstration of TrAMS: FTA’s Next Generation of TEAM

Date:  August 13, 2013

Dear Grantees:

You are invited to participate in a webinar on the Transit Award and Management System (TrAMS), FTA’s next generation of TEAM, which will be deployed in October 2014.

When deployed, TrAMS will offer a more efficient,  user-friendly, and flexible tool to award and manage grants and cooperative agreements, will provide  more useful information, and will strengthen the integrity and consistency of our grants award and management process.

In the past twelve months, FTA has developed significant functionality for the new system, however the system remains a work in progress and we need your input so that we can improve the content we’ve developed so far. 

The webinars will demonstrate key system functionality, including features that:
·       Allow FTA grantees to manage their organizational information;
·       Allow Designated Recipients to sub-apportion formula funds allocated to states and urbanized areas;
·       Allow applicants to apply for formula and discretionary grants. 

The webinars will also discuss the timeline for finalizing TrAMS development, migrating data from TEAM to TrAMS and offering user support and training. We’ll also let you know how you can obtain some hands- on experience with the functionality developed to date. 

How to Participate
No advance registration is required; however participants will be admitted to the webinar on a first-come, first-served basis with a maximum of 200 people able to join the meeting via the webinar link and a maximum of 125 people able to join the meeting via the conference call line.
