Suppliers interested in Skagit Transit`s FTA-funded contracts must review and consider the federal requirements contained in tender documents, generally referred to as “federal clauses.” Several clauses are mandatory and apply to any type of purchase measure, while other clauses are situative or based on the threshold of contractual money. Skagit transit orders refer to the federal clauses on the reverese side of the order (PO) as well as other standard conditions that can be found here. For each purchase, orders can be issued with an additional appendix containing the full language of the federal clauses or another additional contractual language. Skagit Transit receives federal grants from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to finance part of its operations and certain investments, so certain FTA procurement rules may apply to certain government procurements. These provisions are contained in the current version of the FTA Framework Agreement for Fellows, which can be found on the FTA website under www.transit.dot.gov/sites/fta.dot.gov/files/FTA%20Master%20Agreement%20FY2017%20-%2010-1-2016.pdf. The ESTV also publishes Circular 4220.1F, which groups together only the purchasing rules contained in the framework contract. . . .
