Mandatory ECHO-Web Recertification Process

Printer Friendly Number 2011-28

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is now in the process of recertifying users of the Electronic Clearing House Operations (ECHO)-Web grants payment system. In prior years, grantees were required to submit new ECHO User forms and Rules of Conduct forms for all staff, even if no changes were needed. 

To simplify the process, Region 10 is requesting that your Authorizing Official send us the names of your staff that have ECHO-Web system access, indicating if that person has “inquire only” access or “update” access and send them to Beth Sier at and Annette Le at no later than July 15, 2011.

If there are discrepancies, or users do not access the system within 90 days and are locked out, the complete ECHO-Web user package – the ECHO User Access form and Rules of Conduct form – must be submitted to the Region 10 mailbox at A clean, scanned copy will suffice.

For further information, contact Region 10’s Beth Sier at 206-220-7956 or email
