The Authority will consider similar action under its legal authorities, including responsibility determinations in future contracts.
The Authority will also provide a monitoring and enforcement mechanism to verify that work committed to DBEs at contract award is actually performed by the DBEs.
This will be accomplished by submission of vendor payment report by the prime contractor and on-site project visits by Authority staff. The report generally includes the following information that will be submitted through TrAMs: Overall Goals A description of the methodology to calculate the overall goal and the goal calculations can be found in Attachment D to this program.

The Authority will begin using the overall goal on Oct. Transit Vehicle Manufacturers TVM Goals The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority including sub-recipients will require each transit vehicle manufacturer, as a condition of being authorized to bid or propose on FTA-assisted transit vehicle procurements, to certify that it has complied with the requirements of section The language included in all Transit Vehicle Manufacturers solicitations states the following: In setting the overall goal, you should be guided, to the extent applicable, by the principles underlying 49 CFR Part The base from which the TVM calculates this goal is the amount of FTA financial assistance included in transit vehicle contracts TVMs will perform during the fiscal year in question.
TVMs must exclude from this base, funds attributable to work performed outside the United States and its territories, possessions, and commonwealths. These requirements and procedures with respect to submission and approval of overall goals apply to TVMs as they do to the Authority.
As a transit vehicle manufacturer, you may make the certification required by this section if you have submitted the goal this section requires and FTA has approved it or not disapproved it.
This breakout will be updated annually when the goal calculation is updated.
Contract Goals The Authority will use contract goals to meet a portion of the overall goal. The Authority does not project being able to meet the goal using race-neutral means. Contract goals are established so that, over the period to which the overall goal applies, the contract goals will cumulatively result in meeting any portion of the overall goal that is not projected to be met through the use of race-neutral means.
The Authority will establish contract goals only on those DOT-assisted contracts that have subcontracting possibilities. The Authority need not establish a contract goal on every such contract, and the size of contract goals will be adapted to the circumstances of each such contract availability of DBEs to perform the particular type of work and projected subcontractable dollar amount or percentage of work available to DBEs.
The Authority will express its contract goals as a percentage of the total amount of a DOT-assisted contract.
