Printer Friendly Number 2012-37

Please click here for the PDF version.

The U.S. Department of Transportation Office of Inspector General has instructed the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to complete a recertification of all users of the Transportation Electronic Awards and Management (TEAM) grants system. The TEAM User Access Request form can be found on the TEAM web site ( For convenience, the forms are also included in this bulletin along with a PowerPoint guidance showing how to fill out the forms.

Determine which TEAM users within your agency require recertification and which former TEAM users need to be deactivated. Please provide this information (a document with a list of current active users) along with the completed TEAM User Access forms of deleted or new users to the FTA Region 10 mailbox,, no later than July 15, 2012. The TEAMWeb System will reauthorize/deactivate all user accounts in our region solely on the basis of the last log in date occurring after or prior to November 1, 2010.

PINning Authority
If a TEAM user is authorized to submit and execute grants, along with the TEAM User Access Request, a Designation of Signature Authority letter on the agencyís letterhead (sample below) must accompany all requests for users to have a PIN. As part of this process, FTA is also requesting that each recipient organization include a statement verifying that each PIN user is authorized under the agencyís applicable documentation to PIN at the specific level or levels they are being assigned. Due to the security protocols, we must leave PIN numbers on answers machines on users that need them. If you do not have an answering machine, we will send your PIN via snail mail.

Userís Authorizing Signature Section
The Userís Authorizing Signature in the User Information section is for the supervisorís signature only and not for the TEAM userís signature. The TEAM user must sign and date under the Acknowledgement of Rules of Conduct for System Use, except for deleted users.


Deactivating/Deleting User
If a TEAM user is being deleted, please fill out a TEAM User Access Request form and check the Delete User in the Check Applicable Box at the top. A deleted user does not require a signature under the Acknowledgement of Rules of Conduct for System Use but does require a signature from the supervisor in the Userís Authorizing Signature.
