Data Access and Data Sharing FTA seeks to improve public transportation for America’s communities by sharing digital data or source code collected or developed through its research with the public. This allows research organizations, transit agencies, and other stakeholders to learn from and expand upon the insights developed from FTA-funded research. An award made pursuant to this NOFO will be subject to the latest version of FTA’s Master Agreement (available at https:// www.transit.dot.gov/funding/granteeresources/sample-fta-agreements/ftagrant-agreements), including Section 17 Patent Rights and Section 18 Rights in Data and Copyrights. All work conducted under this award must follow the Department data policies outlined in the DOT Public Access Plan at: https://ntl.bts.gov/ public-access/how-comply, including the development and approval of a Data Management Plan (DMP). Recipients are required to include these obligations in any sub-awards or other related funding agreements. A DMP is a document that describes how recipients plan to handle digital datasets, software, or code generated over the course of a research project pursuant to Federal and Departmental requirements. A DMP must be provided as a condition of receiving FTA funds under the Section 5312 Research Program and should adequately identify: (1) the data to be collected, (2) how the data will further the goals of this effort, (3) how the data will be made accessible, and (4) how the data will be stored. DMPs can be updated over time if the scope of the project or the type of data that will be collected changes. FTA staff is available to assist recipients with complying with public data access requirements. FTA expects recipients to remove confidential business information (CBI) and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) before providing public access to project data. Recipients must ensure the appropriate data are accessible to FTA or the public for a minimum of five years after the award period of performance expires. Recipients must make available to the Department copies of all work developed in performance of a project funded under this announcement, including but not limited to software and data. Data rights shall be in accordance with 2 CFR 200.315, Intangible property. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:32 Sep 21, 2022 Jkt 256001 i. Independent Evaluation Projects funded under this announcement will be subject to evaluation by an independent evaluator selected by FTA. Recipients will be required to coordinate with the independent evaluator to assist in developing an evaluation plan and collecting, storing and managing data required to fulfill that evaluation plan. j. Software Provisions Any standards, guidance, tools or software developed as a part of this solicitation will be subject to provisions of FTA’s Master Agreement and evaluated for the potential to be shared for use by public transportation agencies. 3. Reporting Post-award reporting requirements include the electronic submission of Federal Financial Reports and Milestone Progress Reports in TrAMS. Documentation is required for payment. Additional progress reporting to the FTA project manager may be required. The recipient may be expected to participate in events or peer networks related to the goals and objectives of the program. The Federal Financial Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA) requires data entry at the FFATA Sub Award Reporting System (https:// www.FSRS.gov) for all sub-awards and sub-contracts issued for $30,000 or more, as well as addressing executive compensation for both award recipients and sub-award organizations. As part of completing the annual certifications and assurances required of FTA grant recipients, a successful applicant must report on the suspension or debarment status of itself and its principals. If the award recipient’s active grants, cooperative agreements, and procurement contracts from all Federal awarding agencies exceeds $10,000,000 for any period of time during the period of performance of an award made pursuant to this Notice, the recipient must comply with the Recipient Integrity and Performance Matters reporting requirements described in Appendix XII to 2 CFR part 200. Note that vehicle demonstration projects are not considered regular and continuing, and so data on ridership and vehicle operations for demonstration projects are not reported to the National Transit Database (NTD). The cost of the project may be reportable as a reconciling item by full reporters. Recipients should consult their NTD Validation Analyst on proper reporting of demonstration projects.
