Dear Colleague:

Welcome to the Federal Transit Administrationís Best Practices Procurement Manual website.

Since the original publication of the manual on May 7, 1996, we have added a number of new topics and have identified a variety of additional best practices. Many thanks to all of you who have contributed ideas, topics, and "best practice" content, as well as those who have helped to make this document as "customer-friendly" as possible.

We continue to actively seek grantee and industry comments, suggestions for new topics, and "best practice" proposals, so the manual can be kept up-to-date and relevant to your needs. Your thoughtful contributions will help ensure that Americaís transit systems keep our communities safe and moving.

Sincerely,
Jennifer L. Dorn
Administrator
