  • 501 - Contracting for Transit Services

  • ​The services of one or more providers can be used to provide the most effective and efficient scheduling of trips possible.

    State and Federally Compliant Procurement: The process for procuring transit operating or management services from private providers must follow Federal, state and local statutory and regulatory requirements. The procurement standards apply whether the need is for one or more small, local private providers or a large national company to provide services. Subrecipients are responsible for incorporating the applicable Federal clauses and certifications in any procurement over $10,000. A checklist and further assistance are offered to subrecipients by the Integrated Mobility Division (IMD). More information about Third‐party Contracting is found in Attachment 301‐2.
    Private Provider Services: Subrecipients may purchase services at market rates from private providers on an incidental basis. Subrecipients may not enter a contract with a private service provider without the approval of the Regional Grant Specialist.
    Review of Contract Draft: Subrecipients must submit a draft of their Third‐party contract for review by the Regional Grant Specialist before it is executed. A copy of the final contract should be sent to the Regional Grant Specialist after it is executed.
    Conformance and Performance: Subrecipients must maintain a contract administration system that ensures all contractors perform in accordance with the terms, conditions, and specifications of their contracts. Contracts for operating services must include performance expectations and goals.
    Compliance: Third‐party transit service providers are operating in the “shoes” of the grantee. All compliance, best practice and reporting requirements that apply to the grantee also apply to the contractor.
