Federal Transit Administration Master Agreement

Skagit transit commands refer to federal clauses on the venerated order page (PO) as well as other standard conditions that can be viewed here. For the individual purchase, POs may be accompanied by a complementary appendix containing the full language of the federal clauses or another additional language of the contract. Skagit Transit receives federal grants from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to finance part of its operations, so some investments may apply to certain contracting rules. These provisions are contained in the current version of the FTA Masteragrement for Fellows, which can be accessed on the FTA website at www.transit.dot.gov/sites/fta.dot.gov/files/FTA%20Master%20Agreement%20FY2017%20-%2010-1-2016.pdf. Suppliers interested in Contracts funded by Skagit Transit with FTA funds should carefully review and consider the federal requirements contained in the tender documents, commonly referred to as “federal clauses.” Several clauses are mandatory and apply to each type of purchasing measure, while other clauses are situative or based on the contractual dollar threshold. The ESTV also publishes circular 4220.1F, which includes only the purchasing rules contained in the master contract.
