Procurement and Contracts Info

Thank you for your interest in RFTA’s Procurements and Contracts. RFTA is a governmental entity that receives funding from local, state and federal agencies. As a result, RFTA has to be a responsible steward of those funds and ensure that we are always getting the best quality product or service at the best value.  It’s how we are accountable to those who entrust us with millions of dollars each year and it’s how we ensure that we have access to those funds moving into the future. The procurement of quality products, cost-effective equipment and services is a high-priority for our agency.
