Bus Contractor's Existing SSPP?
Question: Our agency contracts our bus and paratransit service operations and maintenance to a contractor, and that contractor has an existing System Safety Program Plan (SSPP). Since our agency is the recipient of the FTA funds (not the contractor), can the contractor keep their existing SSPP, and can our new ASP cite/reference sections of the contractor's SSPP?

Yes, a recipient’s ASP may cite or reference sections of its contracted service provider’s System Safety Program Plan (SSPP) as they apply to the agency’s processes for Safety Risk Management, Safety Assurance, or Safety Promotion and satisfy PTASP regulation requirements.
