RULE §31.43Contracting Requirements

(a) Purpose. This section describes contracting standards and related requirements for recipients of state and federal public transportation grant funds.

(b) Standards. The standards contained in 2 C.F.R. Part 200 and Part 1201, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards apply to public transportation contracting activities. The department will monitor subrecipient compliance with those standards.

(c) Subcontracts. Subrecipients shall furnish to the department notice of the intent to award a purchase order or contract to any individuals or organizations not a part of the subrecipient's organization when the amount of the purchase meets or exceeds the threshold level in the Government Code or Local Government Code (or greater than $25,000 for those entities not covered by the Government Code or Local Government Code) requiring formal competitive procurement. Purchases shall not be split out to stay below the threshold amount. No subcontract will relieve the subrecipient of the subrecipient's legal responsibilities to the department.
