The end of the federal fiscal year is approaching and the deadline for authorization requests is coming up. At the recent Regional Transportation Planning Agencies (RTPA) meeting, the Division of Local Assistance advised participants of two key dates for ensuring that end-of-year obligations get processed:
- July 15: Deadline for FTA transfer requests to District Local Assistance Engineers (DLAEs)
- August 1: Deadline for Request for Authorizations (RFAs) to DLAEs
Requests submitted after these will still be reviewed and processed, but if you’re seeking authorization to proceed with your project this fiscal year (FFY 13/14), make sure to get your packages in.
