A. We are forwarding a procurement policy manual that was developed for the Lackawanna County Transit System after an FTA Procurement System Review for your guidance. We believe this covers the various policy requirements in FTA Circular 4220.1F but it will have to be modified to reflect your particular organizational responsibilities.
We would also refer you to the “Procurement System Self-Assessment Guide for Grantees.” This Guide will help you identify the specific procurement policy requirements in FTA Circular 4220.1F that you must address in your procurement policies and procedures. (Posted: June, 2012)
