These seminars are a part of our ongoing oversight efforts to enhance and refine our grantees’ financial management systems to meet the standards established by the Common Rule (49 CFR Part 18.20). The seminar also covers the topics of Financial Capacity Assessments and the related financial plan requirements for grantees seeking New Start Funding. The instructors will also lead a review of sound internal control principles, cost principles, cost allocation plans and business disaster recovery planning.

The seminar is highly interactive and provides plenty of opportunity to network with your peers at other agencies and identify best practices for meeting Federal requirements.

The FTA public web site may be used to access the seminar brochure for further information on the seminar and registration instructions - http://www.fta.dot.gov/funding/oversight/grants_financing_99.html.

FTA encourages chief financial officers, internal auditors and financial, project and grant managers to take advantage of these seminars. Please contact Patricia Hendrix at (206) 220-4465, or email patricia.hendrix@dot.gov if you have questions concerning this notice.
