Dear transportation partners,
We are approaching the busiest season of a year for federal aid projects delivery. Below are the deadlines for the end of FFY 14/15 delivery for all district 3 local agencies.
We will need all FTA transfer request by Monday, July 20th, 2015. If your agency can not submit the FTA transfer request to the district office by the deadline, please contact me directly. HQ has set July 31st as the deadline for the districts to submit these requests. We need a week or so to process these requests at the district office.
In order to prepare for August redistribution, Caltrans HQ Local Program has set the deadline of de-obligation of all formula OA as June 30, from Districts to HQ. Based on our past experience, this could impact projects funded by CMAQ or RSTP in which agency request to “transfer” savings from one phase to another when eligible. If you have any project funds that need to be de-obligated, please send in your request no later than June 22nd, 2015 to us. Please note that this notification to cease-and-desist de-obligations apply to all projects including bridge and safety.
All Requests for Authorization must be submitted to the district office by August 7th, 2015 for us to process and submit to FHWA. District staff will continue to work on requests submitted after this date, on a first-come first-served basis, but receiving authorization approval before October 1st can no longer be guaranteed.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions with these deadlines.
