the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates
made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial! statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for

~rn - Evaluaci6n Tecnica
Inventario de hardware .
La primera parte de una evaluacion de IT es documentar todo el software y hardware ~ue propiedad de 1a organizaci6n en relaci6n aJ proyecto en @:esti6n. Es imp()rtante incluir
todos los equigos, seIVidor~ enrutadores, conmutadores y puntos de acceso Wi-Fi. Se dOCWllenta cada sistema operativQ, incluido su numero de verstOIk sofu¥are en los servidores
y cualquier softWare de escntorio imp'ortante. Continne, que la cantidad de licencias de software coincida con el software que esta en U50, el usa de somvare de administraci6n de
activos automatiza el proceso. Generaimente, no es necesario documentar software libre como navegadores web.
Almacenamiento de datos y recueeraci6n de desastres.
EI almacenamiento de datos es una parte central de cualquier red de IT. La evaluacion incluye Ja cantidad de datos que se administran. dande se alrnacenan y como se respaldan.
Precauciones de seguridad y desasttc actual, los planes de recuperacion tambien fonnan parte de la evaluacion. Un escenario comlin para proteger los datos de la mision critica
almacena datos en aos servldores identicos 0 redWldantes. Si lID servidor fal~ el 00'0 puede ser usado de irunediato. Se debe realizar una copia de seguridad de todos los datos
importantes al menos Wl3 vez a la semana, con copias de seguridad incrementales diarias para respaJdar ~o lo los archivos que se han modificado en las ult:im.as 24 horas.Los archivos
de respaldo deben almacenal'se en una uoicaci6n segwa fuera del sitio en caso de que tiaya Wl mcendlO en el edificio. Algunas organizaciones almacenan copias de datos en una
ciudad diferente en el caso de un desastre metropolitano.
Acceso y seguridad del usuario.
Las.personas que usan la plataforma ~e IT de la organizacion, habla can los jefes de departamento y Ie preguntan a un grupo representativo de empleados y clientes su opinion sobre
el sistema actual. Les pre!!WltaffiOS como suelen acCeder al

La fase de implementaci6n implica mas que solo escribir c6digo. EI c6digo tam bien necesita ser
probado y depurado, asf como compilado e integrado en un ejecutable completo producto.
Aplicaremos nuestro marco de servicios de diseno para Metropolitan Bus Authority, con el animo
integrar todos los requisitos y necesidades mas fundamentales para la plataforma a ser validados e
incluidos en la implementaci6n. Nuestra metodologfa robusta ayudara a reducir el riesgo durante el
proceso de implementaci6n, entregando una soluci6n rapida, probada y debidamente adecuada a
las necesidades plasm ad as en este proceso. A su vez, se integrara el sistema a la plataforma
actual, la cual ya tiene varios componentes que estan en uso hoy en dia, generando valor agregado

Software and Hardware Inventory _
The first part of an IT assessment documents all the software and hardware owned by the organization, including every computer, server, router, switch and WI-fi access point Document every
operating system, including its version number, software on the servers and any important desktop software. Confirm that the number _of_ so~are ,Dcenses matches the software that is in use,

Data Storage and Disaster Recovery ", '" ' -,' -.- . . , ," --, ;-' <-'.>:~;
Data storage is a central part of any IT network. Assessment include the amount of data being managed, where it is stored and how it is backed up. Security precautions and current disaster
recovery plans also be a part of the assessment A common scenario to protect mission critical data stores data on two identical, or redundant, servers. If one server crashes, the other can be
:used immediately. All important data should be backed up at least once a week, with daily incremental backups to back up only the files that have been modified in the previous 24 hours.
Backup files should be stored in a secure off-site location in case there is a building fire. Some organizations store copies of data in a different city in the event of a metropolitan-wide disaster.
User Access and Security -- 'C.::;; ->,;'<:L~. ~\"i' -"
,'The people who use IT talk to department heads and ask a representative group of employees and customers for their opinion on the current system. We ask them how they usuaRy access the
network, what they tike, what they don't Uke and what improvements they would Uke to see. Keeping intruders out of the network also needs 10 be assessed. Document the security software and
hardware that is used to stop intruders and to monitor intrusion atter"llPts. Include the procedures that are in place ~ orshould be - to deal with such Ci threat -

Current maintenance schedules, as well as planned system upgrades and additions to the IT network are going to be included in the IT assessment Supporting different versions of operating
systems and different brands of computers can be expensive compared to supporting standanflZed desktops and laptops an with the same operating system. In some cases, the cost of buying
new systems can be recouped by reduced maintenance. If the organization is planning to hire new employees, it needs to know what the effect wiD be on the current infrastrucbJre., HIring new

Apprenticeship and Training, or with a State Apprenticeship Agency recognized by the
Bureau, or if a person is employed in his or her first 90 days of probationary employment
as an apprentice in such an apprenticeship program, who is not individually registered in [I
the program, but who has been certified by the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training or
a State Apprenticeship Agency (where appropriate) to be eligible for probationary
employment as an apprentice. The allowable ratio of apprentices to journeymen on the
job site in any craft classification shall not be greater than the ratio permitted to the

contractor as to the entire work force under the registered program. Any worker listed
on a payroll at an apprentice wage rate, who is not registered or otherwise employed as
[J
stated above, shall be paid not less than the applicable wage rate on the wage
determination for the classification of work actually performed. In addition, any
apprentice performing work on the job site in excess of the ratio permitted under the

journeyman hourly rate specified in the applicable wage determination. Trainees shall be
paid fringe benefits in accordance with the provisions of the trainee program. If the
trainee program does not mention f~inge benefits, trainees shall be paid the full amount
of fringe benefits listed on the wage determination unless the Administrator of the Wage
and Hour Division determines that there is an apprenticeship program associated with
the corresponding journeyman wage rate on the wage determination which provides for
less than full fringe benefits for apprentices. Any employee listed on the payroll at a
] trainee rate that is not registered and participating in a training plan approved by the
Employment and Training Administration shall be paid not less than the applicable wage
rate on the wage determination for the classification of work actually performed. In
] addition, any trainee performing work on the job site in excess of the ratio permitted
under the registered program shall be paid not less than the applicable wage rate on the

J wage determination for the work actually performed. In the event the Employment and
Training Administration withdraws approval of a training program, the contractor will no
longer be permitted to utilize trainees at less than the applicable predetermined rate for

20. CONTRACT WORK HOURS AND SAFETY STANDARDS ACT

Background and Application

The Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act are codified at 40 USC 3701, et seq,
The Act applies to grantee contracts and subcontracts "financed at least in part by loans
or grants from ... the [Federal] Government" 40 USC 3701(b) (1) (8) (iii) and (b) (2), 29
CFR 5.2(h), 49 CFR 18.36(i) (6). Although the original Act required its application in any
construction contract over $2,000 or non-construction contract to which the Act applied
over $3,000 (and language to that effect is still found in 49 CFR 18.36(i) (6)), the Act no
longer applies to any "contract in an amount that is not greater than $100,000" 40 USC
] 3701(b) (3) (A) (iii).

The Act applies to construction contracts and, in very limited circumstances, non-
J construction projects that employ "laborers or mechanics on a public work." These non-
construction applications do not generally apply to transit procurements because transit
] procurements (to include rail cars and buses) are deemed "commercial items" 40 USC
3707, 41 USC 403 (12). A grantee that contemplates entering into a contract to procure
a developmental or unique item should consult counsel to determine if the Act applies to

J that procurement and that additional language required by 29 CFR 5.5(c) must be added
to the basic clause below

I Model Clause/Language
j
FfA does not prescribe the form or content of such clauses. The following are suggestions
l of clauses to be used in different types of contracts:

a. Termination for Convenience (General Provision). The (Recipient) may


l_1 terminate this contract, in whole or in part, at any time by written notice to the Contractor
when it is in the Government's best interest. The Contractor shall be paid its costs,
l including contract close-out costs, and profit on work performed up to the time of
J termination. The Contractor shall promptly submit its termination claim to (Recipient) to
be paid the Contractor. If the Contractor has any property in its possession belonging to
the (Recipient), the Contractor will account for the same, and dispose of it in the manner
J the (Recipient) directs. '
'"
b. Termination for Default [Breach or Cause] (General Provision). If the
J "
Contractor does not deliver supplies in accordance with the contract delivery schedule,
or, if the contract is for services, the Contractor fails to perform in the manner called for
J in the contract, or if the Contractor fails to comply with any other provisions of the
contract, the (Recipient) may terminate this contract for default. Termination shall be
effected by serving a notice of termination on the contractor setting forth the manner in
1 which the Contractor is in default. The contractor will only be paid the contract price for
J
supplies delivered and accepted, or services performed in accordance with the manner of
performance set forth in the contract.
]
If it is later determined by the (Recipient) that the Contractor had an excusable reason
for not performing, such as a strike, fire, or flood, events which are not the fault of or
] are beyond the control of the Contractor, the (Recipient), after setting up a new delivery
"
of performance schedule, may allow the Contractor to continue work, or treat the
termination as a termination for convenience.
J
c. Opportunity to Cure (General Provision). The (Recipient) in its sole discretion
J may, in the case of a termination for breach or default, allow the Contractor [an
appropriately short period of time] in which to cure the defect. In such case, the notice
of termination will state the time period in which cure is permitted and other appropriate
l
conditions .

default, (Recipient) shall have the right to terminate the Contract without any further
obligation to Contractor. Any such termination for default shall not in any way operate to

II
preclude (Recipient) from also pursuing all available remedies against Contractor and its
sureties for said breach or default. J

d. Waiver of Remedies for any Breach. In the event that (Recipient) elects to waive
its remedies for any breach by Contractor of any covenant, term or condition of this
Ii
Contract, such waiver by (Recipient) shall not limit (Recipient)'s remedies for any
succeeding breach of that or of any other term, covenant, or condition of this Contract. C
e. Termination for Convenience (Professional or Transit Service Contracts). The
(Recipient), by written notice, may terminate this contract, in whole or in part, when it is l:
in the Government's interest. If this contract is terminated, the Recipient shall be liable
only for payment under the payment provisions of this contract for services rendered
before the effective date of termination.

f. Termination for Default (Supplies and Service). If the Contractor fails to deliver
supplies or to perform the services within the time specified in this contract or any
[]
extension or if the Contractor fails to comply with any other provisions of this contract,
the (Recipient) may terminate this contract for default. The (Recipient) shall terminate
by delivering to the Contractor a Notice of Termination specifying the nature of the
default. The Contractor will only be paid the contract price for supplies delivered and
accepted, or services performed in accordance with the manner or performance set forth
in th is contract.

If, after termination for failure to fulfill contract obligations, it is determined that the
Contractor was not in default, the rights and obligations of the parties shall be the same
as if the termination had been issued for the convenience of the Recipient.

g. Termination for Default (Transportation Services). If the Contractor fails to pick


up the commodities or to perform the services, including delivery services, within the time
specified in this contract or any extension or if the Contractor fails to comply with any
other provisions of this contract, the (Recipient) may terminate this contract for default.
The (Recipient) shall terminate by delivering to the Contractor a Notice of Termination
specifying the nature of default. The Contractor will only be paid the contract price for U
services performed in accordance with the manner of performance set forth in this
contract.

If, after termination for failure to fulfill contract obligations, it is determined that the

h. Termination for Default (Construction). If the Contractor refuses or fails to


prosecute the work or any separable part, with the diligence that will insure its completion
within the time specified in this contract or any extension or fails to complete the work
within this time, or if the Contractor fails to comply with any other provisions of this
contract, the (Recipient) may terminate this contract for default. The (Recipient) shall
terminate by delivering to the Contractor a Notice of Termination specifying the nature
of the default. In this event, the Recipient may take over the work and compete it by
J contract or otherwise, and may take possession of and use any materials, appliances,
and plant on the work site necessary for completing the work. The Contractor and its
sureties shall be liable for any damage to the Recipient resulting from the Contractor's
1J refusal or failure to complete the work within specified time, whether or not the
Contractor's right to proceed with the work is terminated. This liability includes any

J increased costs incurred by the Recipient in completing the work.

The Contractor's right to proceed shall neither be terminated or the Contractor charged
] with damages under this clause if-

1. The delay in completing the work arises from unforeseeable causes beyond the control
and without the fault or negligence of the Contractor. Examples of such causes include:
acts of God, acts of the Recipient, acts of another Contractor in the performance of a
contract with the Recipient, epidemics, quarantine restrictions, strikes, freight
] embargoes; and

2. The contractor, within [10] days from the beginning of any delay, notifies the

delay is excusable, the time for completing the work shall be extended. The judgment of
l the (Recipient) shall be final and conclusive on the parties, but subject to appeal under
J the Disputes clauses.

If, after termination of the Contractor's right to proceed, it is determined that the
Contractor was not in default, or that the delay was excusable, the rights and obligations
of the parties will be the same as if the termination had been issued for the convenience
I of the Recipient.

shall state the manner in which the contractor has failed to perform the requirements of
the contract. The Contractor shall account for any property in its possession paid for from

funds received from the (Recipient), or property supplied to the Contractor by the Ii
(Recipient). If the termination is for default, the (Recipient) may fix the fee, if the contract
provides for a fee, to be paid the contractor in proportion to the value, if any, of work
performed up to the time of termination. The Contractor shall promptly submit its
termination claim to the (Recipient) and the parties shall negotiate the termination
D
settlement to be paid the Contractor.

If the termination is for the convenience of the (Recipient), the Contractor shall be paid

Contractor has an excusable reason for not performing, such as strike, fire, flood, events U

after setting up a new work schedule, may allow the Contractor to continue work, or treat
the termination as a termination for convenience.

25. GOVERNMENT-WIDE DEBARMENT
AND SUSPENSION (NON-PROCUREMENT)

49 CFR Part 29
Executive Order 12549

l Background and Applicabilitv

l_I In conjunction with the Office of Management and Budget and other affected Federal
agencies, DOT published an update to 49 CFR Part 29 on November 26, 2003. This
government-wide regulation implements Executive Order 12549 "Debarment and
lJ Suspension'; Executive Order 12689 "Debarment and Suspension'; and 31 U.s.c. 6101
note (Section 2455, Public Law 103-355, 108 Stat. 3327).

"] The provisions of Part 29 apply to all grantee contracts and subcontracts at any level
expected to equal or exceed $25,000 as well as any contract or subcontract (at any level)
for federally required auditing services, 49 CFR 29 220(b). This represents a change from
l_., prior practice in that the dollar threshold for application of these rules has been lowered
from $100,000 to $25,000. These are contracts and subcontracts referred to in the
regulation as "covered transactions."

Grantees, contractors, and subcontractors (at any level) that enter into covered
transactions are required to verify that the entity (as well as its principals and affiliates)
they propose to contract or subcontract with is not excluded or disqualified. They do this
by (a) Checking the Excluded Parties List System, (b) Collecting a certification from that
] person, or (c) Adding a clause or condition to the contract or subcontract. This represents
a change from prior practice in that certification is still acceptable but is no longer
required, 49 CFR 29.300.
']
Grantees, contractors, and subcontractors who enter into covered transactions also must

] require the entities they contract with to comply with 49 CFR 29, subpart C and include
this requirement in their own subsequent covered transactions (i.e., the requirement
flows down to subcontracts at all levels).

J Clause Language
1 The following clause language is suggested, not mandatory. It incorporates the optional
J method of verifying that contractors are not excluded or disqualified by certification.

Suspension and Debarment

This contract is a covered transaction for purposes of 49 CFR Part 29. As such, the
contractor is required to verify that none of the contractor, its principals, as defined at 49
CFR 29.995, or affiliates, as defined at 49 CFR 29.905, are excluded or disqualified as
defined at 49 CFR 29.940 and 29.945.

The contractor is required to comply with 49 CFR 29, Subpart C and must include the
requirement to comply with 49 CFR 29, Subpart C in any lower tier covered transaction
it enters into.

By signing and submitting its bid or proposal, the bidder or proposer certifies as follows:

The certification in this clause is a material representation of fact relied upon by


Metropolitan Bus Authority. If it is later determined that the bidder or proposer
knowingly rendered an erroneous certification, in addition to remedies available to
Metropolitan Bus Authority, the Federal Government may pursue available remedies,
including but not limited to suspension and/or debarment. The bidder or proposer agrees
to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR 29, Subpart C while this offer is valid and
throughout the period of any contract that may arise from this offer. The bidder or
proposer further agrees to include a provision requiring such compliance in its lower tier
covered transactions. .>

insufficient to meet FTA's purposes for awarding research grants. This model clause, with
l J
larger rights as a standard, is proposed with the understanding that this standard could
be modified to FTA's needs.

l CONTRACTS INVOLVING EXPERIMENTAL, DEVELOPMENTAL, OR RESEARCH WORK.

A. Rights in Data - The following requirements apply to each contract involving


] experimental, developmental or research work:

1 (1) The term "subject data" used in this clause means recorded information, whether or
J not copyrighted, that is delivered or specified to be delivered under the contract. The
term includes graphic or pictorial delineation in media such as drawings or photographs;
text in specifications or related performance or design-type documents; machine forms
such as punched cards, magnetic tape, or computer memory printouts; and information
retained in computer memory. Examples include, but are not limited to: computer
'] software, engineering drawings and associated lists, specifications, standards, process
sheets, manuals, technical reports, catalog item identifications, and related information.
The term "subject data" does not include financial reports, cost analyses, and similar
J information incidental to contract administration.

(2) The following restrictions apply to all subject data first produced in the performance
l of the contract to which this Attachment has been added:
J

(a) Except for its own internal use, the Purchaser or Contractor may not publish or
J reproduce subject data in whole or in part, or in any manner or form, nor may the
Purchaser or Contractor authorize others to do so, without the written consent of the

J Federal Government, until such time as the Federal Government may have either released
or approved the release of such data to the public; this restriction on publication,
however, does not apply to any contract with an academic institution.

(b) In accordance with 49 C.F.R. § 18.34 and 49 C.F.R. § 19.36, ~e:l'vrnmt


reserves a royalty-free, non-exclusive and irrevocable license tl'{Ge~1\/.r?8J:>ish, or
otherwise use, and to authorize others to use, for "Federal GQv~fnmgt.APur6!,es" any

below. As used in the previous sentence, "for Federal Government purposes," means use LI
only for the direct purposes of the Federal Government. Without the copyright owner's ~,

consent, the Federal Government may not extend its Federal license to any other party.
U
1. Any subject data developed under that contract, whether or not a copyright has been
obtained; and [
2. Any rights of copyright purchased by the Purchaser or Contractor using Federal
assistance in whole or in part provided by FrA.
n
(c) When FrA awards Federal assistance for experimental, developmental, or research
work, it is FrA's general intention to increase transportation knowledge available to the []
public, rather than to restrict the benefits resulting from the work to participants in that
work. Therefore, unless FrA determines otherwise, the Purchaser and the Contractor
performing experimental, developmental, or research work required by the underlying [I
contract to which this Attachment is added agrees to permit FrA to make available to the
public, either FrA's license in the copyright to any subject data developed in the course
of that contract, or a copy of the subject data first produced under the contract for which
[:
a copyright has not been obtained. If the experimental, developmental, or research work,
which is the subject of the underlying contract, is not completed for any reason
whatsoever, all data developed under that contract shall become subject data as defined
[]
in subsection (a) of this clause and shari be delivered as the Federal Government may
direct. This subsection (c) , however, does not apply to adaptations of automatic data I]
processing equipment or programs for the Purchaser or Contractor's use whose costs are
financed in whole or in part with Federal assistance provided by FrA for transportation
capital projects. [J
(d) Unless prohibited by state law, upon request by the Federal Government, the
Purchaser and the Contractor agree to indemnify, save, and hold harmless the Federal []
Government, its officers, agents, and employees acting within the scope of their official
duties against any liability, including costs and expenses, resulting from any willful or
intentional violation by the Purchaser or Contractor of proprietary rights, copyrights, or U
right of privacy, arising out of the publication, translation, reproduction, delivery, use, or
disposition of any data furnished under that contract. Neither the Purchaser nor the
Contractor shall be required to indemnify the Federal Government for any such liability
arising out of the wrongful act of any employee, official, or agents of the Federal
o
Government. []
(e) Nothing contained in this clause on rights in data shall imply a license to the Federal
Government under any patent or be construed as affecting the scope of any license or [I
other right otherwise granted to the Federal Government under any patent.

exempt from the requirements of subsections (b), (c), and (d) of this clause, provided
that the Purchaser or Contractor identifies that data in writing at the time of delivery of

(1) General - If any invention, improvement, or discovery is conceived or first actually


] reduced to practice in the course of or under the contract to which this Attachment has
been added, and that invention, improvement, or discovery is patentable under the laws
of the United States of America or any foreign country, the Purchaser and Contractor
] agree to take actions necessary to provide immediate notice and a detailed report to the
party at a higher tier until FTA is ultimately notified.

(2) Unless the Federal Government later makes a contrary determination in writing,
irrespective of the Contractor's status (a large bUSiness, small business, state government
or state instrumentality, local government, nonprofit organization, institution of higher
education, individual), the Purchaser and the Contractor agree to take the necessary

31. DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (DBE) [

I~
49 CFR Part 26

Background and Applicability

The newest version on the Department of Transportation's Disadvantaged Business


[J
Enterprise (DBE) program became effective July 16, 2003. The rule provides guidance to
grantees on the use of overall and contract goals, requirement to include DBE provisions
in subcontracts, evaluating DBE participation where specific contract goals have been set,
[1
reporting requirements, and replacement of DBE subcontractors. Additionally, the DBE
program dictates payment terms and conditions (including limitations on retainage),
applicable to all subcontractors regardless of whether they are DBE firms or not.
f;
The DBE program applies to all DOT-assisted contracting activities. A formal clause such [i
as that below must be included in all contracts above the micro-purchase level. The
requirements of clause subsection b flow down to subcontracts.
[1
A substantial change to the payment provisions in this newest version of Part 26 concerns
retainage (see section 26.29). Grantee choices concerning retainage should be reflected
in the language chOices in clause subsection d.
"
o
Clause Language r)
The following clause language is suggested, not mandatory. It incorporates the payment
terms and conditions applicable to all subcontractors based in Part 26 as well as those
related only to DBE subcontractors. The suggested language allows for the options
o
available to grantees concerning retainage, specific contract goals, and evaluation of DBE
subcontracting participation when specific contract goals have been established. o
Disadvantaged Business Enterprises

a. This contract is subject to the requirements of Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations,

]
Anyone who performs a safety-sensitive function for the recipient or subrecipient is required to

J comply with 49 CFR 655, with certain exceptions for contracts involving maintenance services.
Maintenance contractors for non-urbanized area formula program grantees are not subject to the
rules. Also, the rules do not apply to maintenance subcontractors.

] Model Clause/Language
..
Introduction

FTA's drug and alcohol rules, 49 CFR 655, respectively, are unique among the regulations issued

] by FTA. First, they require recipients to ensure that any entity performing a safety-sensitive
function on the recipient's behalf (usually subrecipients and/or contractors) implement a complex
drug and alcohol testing program that complies with Parts 655. Second, the rules condition the
l receipt of certain kinds of FTA funding on the recipient's compliance with the rules; thus, the
j recipient is not in compliance with the rules unless every entity that performs a safety-sensitive
function on the recipient's behalf is in compliance with the rules. Third, the rules do not specify
how a recipient ensures that its subrecipients and/or contractors comply with them.
J How a recipient does so depends on several factors, including whether the contractor is covered
independently by the drug and alcohol rules of another Department of Transportation operating
administration, the nature of the relationship that the recipient has with the contractor, and the
financial resources available to the recipient to oversee the contractor's drug and alcohol testing
program. In short, there are a variety of ways a recipient can ensure that its subrecipients and
contractors comply with the rules.

Therefore, FTA has developed three model contract provisions for recipients to use "as is" or to
J modify to fit their particular situations.

Explanation of Model Contract Clauses
[ "

Under Option 1, the recipient ensures the contractor's compliance with the rules by requiring the
,
..

contractor to participate in a drug and alcohol program administered by the recipient. The l!
advantages of doing this are obvious: the recipient maintains total control over its compliance
with 49 CFR 655. The disadvantage is that the recipient, which may not directly employ any
safety-sensitive employees, has to implement a complex testing program. Therefore, this may be
a practical option only for those recipients which have a testing program for their employees, and
n
can add the contractor's safety-sensitive employees to that program.
[)
Under Option 2, the recipient relies on the contractor to implement a drug and alcohol testing
program that complies with 49 CFR 655, but retains the ability to monitor the contractor's testing
program; thus, the recipient has less control over its compliance with the drug and alcohol testing
rules than it does under option 1. The advantage of this approach is that it places the responsibility
for complying with the rules on the entity that is actually performing the safety-sensitive function.
Moreover, it reserves to the recipient the power to ensure that the contractor complies with the
program. The disadvantage of Option 2 is that without adequate monitoring of the contractor's
program, the recipient may find itself out of compliance with the rules.
[J
Under option 3, the recipient specifies some or all of the specific features of a contractor's drug
and alcohol compliance program. Thus, it requires the recipient to decide what it wants to do and
how it wants to do it. The advantage of this option is that the recipient has more control over the [I
.. contractor's drug and alcohol testing program, yet it is not actually administering the testing
program. The disadvantage is that the reCipient has to specify and understand clearly what it
wants to do and why.

BID PROTESTS

1. FTA REVIEW OF PROTESTS

a. FTA will only review protests regarding the alleged failure of the
grantee to have written protest procedures or alleged failure to follow such
l procedures.
I
b. Alleged violations on other grounds are under the jurisdiction of the
J appropriate State or local administrative or judicial authorities. Alleged violations
of a specific Federal requirement that provides an applicable complaint

regulation. Se~, Buy America Requirements, 49 CFR Part 661 (Section
661.15); Participation by Minority Business Enterprise in Department of

l Transportation Programs, 49 CFR Section 23.73.

c. . FTA will only review protests submitted by an interested party as


] defined in paragraph 3, below.

2. REMEDY. FTA's remedy for a grantee's failure to have written protest


] procedures or failure to follow such procedures is limited to requiring the grantee
to develop such procedures, if necessary, and "follow such procedures in

reviewing the protest at issue, if the grantee desires FTA financial participation in
the contract in question. In instances where a grantee has awarded to another
bidder or offeror prior to FTA's decision on the protest, FTA may refuse to
] participate in funding the contract.

4. TIME FOR FILING.
a.
Protestors shall file a protest with FTA not later than five days after
a final decision is rendered under the grantee's protest procedure. In instances

after the protestor knew or should have known of the grantee's failure to render
a final determination on the protest.

b. Grantees shall not award a contract for five days following its
decision on a bid protest except in accordance with the provisions and
limitations of subparagraph h. After five days, the grantee shall confirm with FTA

5. SUBMISSION OF PROTEST TO FTA.


a. Protests should be filed with the appropriate FTA Regional Office
with a concurrent copy to the grantee. l
b. The protest filed with FTA shall:
I
(1) Include the name and address of the protestor.

8, WITHHOLDING OF AWARD. When a protest has been timely filed with


] the grantee before award, the grantee shall not make an award prior to five days
after the resolution of the protest, or if a'protest has been filed with FTA, during
the pendency of that protest, unless the grantee determines that:
1 a. The items to be procured area urgently required;
] b. Delivery or performance will be unduly delayed by failure to make
the award promptly; or
] c. Failure to make prompt award will otherwise cause undue harm to
the grantee or the Federal Government.
J In the event that the grantee determines that the award is to be made
during the five day period following the local protest decision or the pendency of
a protest, the grantee shall notify FTA prior to making such award. FTA will not
review the sufficiency of the grantee's determination to award during the

J pendency of a protest prior to FTA'S bid protest decision. FTA reserves the right
not to participate in the funding of any contract awarded during the pendency of
a protest.

J
9. FTA ACTION. Upon receipt of the submissions, FTA will either request
further information or a conference among the parties, or will render a decision
on the protest.
FTA Act Section 9 (g) (2). Finally, Section 3 (a) (2) (C) prohibits the use of
any grant or loan funds to support procurements using exclusionary or
discriminatory specifications.
Such discretion is necessary with limited preaward and bid protest review
to assure compliance with procurement requirements and standards. The
discretion should also assist grantees by reducing FTA's presence in individual
procurements and, where called for, limiting review to a specific issue, thereby
minimizing the effort needed for a full-scale compliance review.

e. Bid protest procedures. FTA substantially limits its review or bid


protests under this circular. In accordance with the Federalism Executive Order,
most protest issues are best resolved at the State and local level. Thus, FTA now I
only accepts protests alleging that a grantee fails to have written protest I
procedures. or has violated such procedures or violation of Federql law or
regulation. Interested parties must have the opportunity to present their
concerns to the grantee and grantees must have a formal, written process for
['
considering' such concerns. Interested parties that disagree with the grantee's
decision then have a formal record with which to proceed to a State or local
administrative or judicial authority. If grantees have an appropriate protest
process and follow such process, extensive FTA involvement in bid protests is
unnecessary.
In accordance with this reduced FTA role, the remedy for a grantee's
failure to have or follow its protest procedures is simply to require the grantee to
do so, if it desires Federal financial assistance for the contract in question.
Consite~ with the reduced circumstances of FTA review, the circular also
Ii
streamlines the review procedure. l
f. Grantee Procurement Requirements and Standards. In addition to the !
major changes reducing FTA's involvement in grantee third party procurement, l
the circular sets forth Federal requirements applicable to such procurements in
Chapter l. The paragraph essentially sets forth the procurement provisions of r
OMB Circular A-I02, making several modifications and additions needed to L.
address special characteristics of the FTA grant program.
