You are invited to participate in a webinar on the Transit Award and Management System (TrAMS), FTAs next generation of TEAM, which will be deployed in October 2014.

When deployed, TrAMS will offer a more efficient, user-friendly, and flexible tool to award and manage grants and cooperative agreements, will provide more useful information, and will strengthen the integrity and consistency of our grants award and management process.

In the past twelve months, FTA has developed significant functionality for the new system; however, the system remains a work in progress and we need your input so that we can improve the content weve developed so far.

We will be hosting webinars to demonstrate key system functionality, including features that:

Allow FTA grantees to manage their organizational information;
Allow Designated Recipients to sub-apportion formula funds allocated to states and urbanized areas
Allow applicants to apply for formula and discretionary grants.

The webinars will also discuss the timeline for finalizing TrAMS development, migrating data from TEAM to TrAMS and offering user support and training. Well also let you know how you can obtain some hands-on experience with the functionality developed to date.
