I’ve received a number of requests about more procurement training, and just wanted to give you a quick heads up on short NTI course coming to our region in November –
This course provides an overview of transit procurement, emphasizing “best practices” for contract procurements by small and medium transit systems who are recipients of FTA funding. The course provides participants with a framework for examining basic issues pertaining to third-party contracting and introduces minimum standards for individual agency practices as described in the FTA Circular 4220.1F and other relevant federal guidance documents. Specific problem areas that may emerge during the procurement process will be identified and addressed. Circular 4220.1F is referenced throughout the course.
