SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity 
Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU, Pub. L. 109-59, as amended by Pub. 
L. 110-244) requires the Research and Innovative Technology 
Administration (RITA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. 
DOT) to complete competitions for Regional UTCs by March 31, 2010, and 
for Tier I UTCs by June 30, 2010. Because there is no surface 
transportation authorization legislation or other authorizing vehicle 
yet in place to state the structure and funding of the UTC Program 
beyond Federal Fiscal Year 2009, and because of the burden that would 
be placed on applicants to pursue a competition process that has a high 
likelihood of being voided should a multi-year, surface transportation 
authorization substantially change the terms and conditions of the UTC 
Program and grants to be issued under that program, the Research and 
Innovative Technology Administration is suspending these competitions 
until such time as a multi-year surface transportation authorization 
has been enacted.
