Q. We have been instructed to ensure that the items listed in circular 4220.1F, get in our procurement manual. I am unsure how to accomplish this as our procurement manual pertains to purchasing policies for all city departments and not just our transit division.

A.  The FTA Circular 4220.1F defines the requirements that grantees must meet in awarding third party contracts.  FTA has also published a "Self-Assessment Guide" for grantees. The Guide takes you through a series of questions allowing you to review your procurement procedures to see if they contain all of the requirements in FTA Circular 4220.1F. (Revised: May 2010)
