The Ohio Department of Transportation is seeking proposals from providers of Web-based Grant Management and Program Administration Systems for applications and services to support its statewide transit programs and activities.
The transit program encompasses public transit, community transportation, and other passenger transportation programs across Ohio. These programs are funded largely through federal and state grant programs administered by ODOT. ODOT works closely with a wide variety of local community partners to plan, fund and monitor transit programs.
The Ohio Department of Transportation seeks a system to assist in conducting the business of administering public transportation programs in the state. Many of these business processes could be conducted much more efficiently utilizing an online electronic grants management system or related administrative tools, to replace manual and legacy systems currently in use.
The System will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of ODOT business functions such as:
• Electronic Grant Applications
• Grant Review/Approvals
• Invoicing/Financial Operations and Management
• Tracking by Funding Source
• Federal Reporting
• Audit/Compliance Monitoring
• Performance Measurement
• Inventory and Statistics Tracking
• Planning and Policy Evaluation
• Recipient Agency Contact Management
The goal of the System is to improve the ability of ODOT to effectively plan, implement, administer, and evaluate programs and grants to improve public transit, community transportation, and other passenger transportation programs across Ohio. This includes administration of federal grant programs (e.g., Federal Transit Administration and others) as well as other state programs.
Potential providers of products and services related to the implementation of the System must have a proven track record and extensive experience in state Department of Transportation Grant Management Systems for state and federal transit other grant programs. The Successful Proposer will assist ODOT in establishing best practices utilizing proven methods, features, and functionality from other implemented systems.
