Federal Transit Administration (FTA) would like to invite you to attend the Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Financial Management Oversight (FMO) Seminar, September 23-24, 2013 in Seattle, Washington.

The seminar is designed for FTA grantees responsible for assuring appropriate application of Federal statutory requirements and FTA policies related to grant funds. The seminar provides a walk-through of these prevailing requirements to assure grantee compliance in implementation including output derived from their financial management system. Each of the four specialized FMO reviews is discussed with detailed discussions held on the requirements associated with each review. The seminar will cover the FMO review process, sound internal control practices, compliance with the Office of Management and Budget and FTA financial management regulations, federal financial reporting process, American Reinvestment and Recovery Act reporting requirements, budget changes and grant amendments, cost allocation plans, and other topics related to financial management of FTA grants. The seminar provides real-life case studies to foster a better understanding of the requirements and how they are applied in varied situations using group settings.

The seminars are designed for transit agency personnel who are responsible for the financial management of FTA grant funds. This would include transit agency CFO’s, CEO’s, Accountants, and personnel who are responsible for planning/managing transit services, and managing compliance programs.
