National RTAP

CALACT

RIBTC Conference Committee

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) published 2 CFR Part 200, “Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards,” in December 2014. This guidance has had a great impact on all recipients of Federal financial assistance, including all FTA grantees and subrecipients. Additionally, OMB updated this guidance, effective November 12, 2020. Speaker Rich Garrity of RLS & Associates will focus on key compliance elements from the OMB guidance as it relates to the management of FTA grants and the impact of the recent regulatory changes. This session will also provide an overview of the requirements for establishing indirect cost rates under FTA grant awards. January 12, 2020 3:00-5:00 PM Register
What's New in the Transit Manager's Toolkit? National RTAP The National RTAP Transit Manager's Toolkit was developed to give new transit managers the information they will need on day one to ensure their rural transit organizations are operating smoothly and are in compliance with the federal regulations associated with receiving FTA Section 5311 funding. We're updating the Toolkit with new content and resources, and even new sections, such as Leading during a Pandemic and Communicating with the Public. Join three members of the National RTAP Review Board who reviewed the new sections for an introduction to the updated content: Julia Castillo, Laura Corff, and Shauna Miller.
