The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has placed in the docket and on its web site (http://www.fta.dot.gov) Circular 5010.1D Grant Management Requirements a re-issuance of a guidance for post-award grant administration and project management activities for all applicable FTA grant programs. This revision incorporates provisions of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU), and includes the most current guidance for the Federal public transportation programs as of the date of publication.
