The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) conducts oversight workshops across the country for its grantees each year. The purpose is to help attendees broaden their understanding of the federal rules and regulations, as well as how to comply with FTA program requirements. The Capital Project Management Workshop brought together Federal Transit Administration (FTA) engineers and transportation specialist from across the country, FTA’s Project Management Oversight Contractors (PMOCs), and representatives from several FTA headquarters offices to discuss project management, oversight, procurement, administrative, and policy issues related to federally-funded major capital projects. The workshop provided an opportunity for networking with colleagues, sharing concerns, challenges, and lessons learned.
